Not one of Stanley's Best
7 August 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

A totally forgotten film starring Stanley Holloway.He plays a busker who finds a dead body and a wallet containing £500.He hands the money to the police but keeps the wallet.However what he doesn't know is that there is something in the wallet which incriminate the killer.The killer knows this and makes a number of efforts to retrieve the item.A fairly typical Simenon plot.Not particularly interesting.
