Ben Arkwright, a co-director in the firm of Arkwright and Gallen, is having an affair with Anna, the strongly willed wife of Ricky Gallen, Ben's partner. Trouble arises. Starring Zena Walker, Kenneth Cope, Basil Henson and Anthony Dawson. Directed by Robert Lynn.
An adulterous couple turn to murder, only to discover that a petty crook and blackmailer has already had his eye upon them. Zena Walker is convincingly ruthless as the dominant partner, driving Basil Henson on to carry out her plans. Kenneth Cope does well as the chancer who thinks he's struck lucky (though it's evident he was wearing a hairpiece by the time he starred in Randall And Hopkirk Deceased...!) One slight mystery is why Pamela Ann Davy as his girlfriend is billed so far down in the cast, below the murdered spouses, since her part is a good deal more important to the story.
This is one of the later Edgar Wallace films, without the "statue in the mist" opening titles. The series was obviously running down commercially by this time, but those last few episodes include several of my favourites, full of low-budget atmosphere.
