Glimpse of the mid-50s London underworld
17 February 2018 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

Sometimes these quota quickies give a unique insight into a vanished world before Londoin went global: a rather archaic world of clearly delineated class divisions where the crooks reported to the boss, who spent most of his life in the most fashionable Mayfair parties. The huge cars - Bentleys and Rovers - contributed to this atmosphere. The plot of this episode involves much stock footage, but director Ken Hughes livens it up with an astutely filmed car chase.
