Katie Johnson of "The Ladykillers" Fame Standout Performance
9 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Death of an Angel" (1952) would have been a "B" feature supporting the main feature film when it was released in the early fifties.The first reviewer above exhaustively comments on the basic plot so I will confine mine to other matters.Of course no one who has seen "The Ladykillers" the Ealing (1951) comedy, can forget the old landlady played by the venerable Katie Johnson (1878-1957) who in this film plays a patient of Dr.Welling (Patrick Barr).The latter is known to me playing "Mutt" Summers who pilots the Halifax bomber in which Dr.Barnes Wallis (Sir Michael Redgrave) is testing out his new bouncing bomb idea as portrayed in "The Dam Busters" (1954).Raymond Young, Julie Somers & Jane Baxter are unknown to me in other notable roles who play Dr.Chris Boswell, Judy Welling and Mary Welling respectively.

the other notable actor was Russell Napier who plays the chief detective, a role Russell became used to playing in the 1950s.His most notable role for me was playing Captain Stanley Lord of "The Californian" in the 1958 film "A Night to Remember".All told a passable film which I had never seen and which I rated with 6/10.
