Yes! THAT Gerry Anderson!!
11 January 2020 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Like most people, I had always assumed that 'Doppelgänger' (1969) constituted Gerry Anderson's sole attempt to break into live action features; but with 'Four Feather Falls' already behind him he not only produced but directed this very early Merton Park Edgar Wallace quickie (complete with regular composer Barry Gray on the soundtrack)!

Standouts in the cast include a clean-shaven George Murcell as the chief heavy and a typically sardonic Miriam Karlin as a cafe proprietress.

Alun Falconer's script gets a bit talky during the middle section, but as usual with 'B' movies of this era it makes excellent use of locations and has a nice unexpected twist at the end...
