When Ken strikes Don from behind the latter is seen to fall down on the bed, but in the next frame he is already lying face down on the bed. See more »
Be Very Sure of Your Friends
An interesting cast founder in this incredibly cheap-looking and inconsequential second feature that resembles a short public information film sternly warning us that Crime Does Not Pay that inadvertently came in at feature length.
Apart from the robbery sequence itself, lighting cameraman Brendan Stafford makes no attempt at all to make the film look like a thriller; which ceases to matter, however, when the crew finally take to the uncluttered streets of fifties Southall and the Thames Embankment.
Tom Drake looks as if he wandered in off the set of an adjacent production; while I'd much rather have seen the leaner, meaner picture that a spiteful-faced brunette called Deidre Mayne (as Richard Shaw's grasping and not to be trifled with moll Judy) escaped from.
