Product Description

Breaking Point A 1961 Butchers production made at Walton Studios. Peter Reynolds plays a 'nar do well' nephew of a successful printing company owner. His marriage to Johanna Dunham - who went on to star in the series Van Der Valk -is on the rocks his work at the printing firm is rather mundane until a small Eastern state "Lalvador" wanting plates made for their currency is the target of hostile forces. Reyonds is set up by the spies meanwhile Dermot Walsh of Richard The Lionheart fame closes in on Reynolds wife...typical B feature of the era, picture and sound of good quality. Man From Tangier Action starts in Tangier with a murder and a robbery. Voss (Martin Benson) one of the master crooks is after the thief who stole the plates and Michele (Lisa Gastoni) his unwilling moll is sent to retrieve them. Enter Collins (Robert Hutton) an American stunt man who, whilst having a haircut, his coat is accidentally switched which puts him right in the middle of the intrigue.. Good shots of Victoria station, Humber hawks etc. The story moves at a good pace and the picture and sound are of good quality Digitally Remastered & Restored

4.0 out of 5 stars Once again, good memories! 28 May 2011
By A. W. Wilson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't quite bring myself to give these 2 films 5 stars, but, for what they are, they definitely get 4. I saw both these in the cinema as a youth/boy, and "Man From Tangier" was serialized in picture form in "Film Fun" the copy of which I still have and I watched the film and followed it in the "comic" (never thought of it as a comic, did you?). Both films are so typical of good Br "B" film making. Brief durations, usually just under 1 hr, a bit of historically interesting location work, and familiar faces galore. Purely from a personal viewpoint I prefer "Tangier". Hutton is just so brash, and so typical of the American "stars" used in so many of these films. The underused Lisa Gastoni is good to see in both films, and there is a fair bit of action. "Breaking Point" has a good plot, a gambling club (why no torch singer? Was Yana busy?), and a good if predictable climax. It also benefits from a young very wholesome Joanna Dunham, and Dermot Walsh's hair never fails to amaze. Both prints, sound and picture are excellent. Good value for money and an improvement on some of Renown's re;eases

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 good "b" pictures from renown 20 April 2011
By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Man from Tangier (1957) stars former Hollywood actor Robert Hutton and Breaking Point (1961) stars Peter Reynolds & Dermot Walsh. Dermot Walsh always adds class to any "b" picture he is in and he does this time too. Both films are directed by Lance comfort and the more pacier is the second named film. You will find glamorous Lisa Gastoni in each film and she adds that bit of mystery to the plot. Likewise Jack Allen is in both but has a more conventional businessman role in Breaking Point. There are plenty of London locations and the mews settings that were popular are once again in evidence. The picture quality is very good on both and the sound clear. Both films were produced at Nettlefold/Walton studios. Nicely boxed with cast lists etc. Included is a card to join their film club. Price wise very good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two more Butchers treats 4 Jun 2011
By Colin Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This enjoyable Butchers films double bill, both directed by prolific B-movie director Lance Comfort, have a connecting theme in the form of printing plates.
Firstly, we have "Breaking Point", in this 1961 production, Peter Reynolds stars in the lead role, playing the part of Eric Winlatter, the unhappily married nephew of a printing firm owner, his work at the firm is rather dull.
Eventually the Eastern state of Lalvador makes a request for the plates used for the country's currency. After a disagreement with his wife, Cherry, (Joanna Dunham) Winlatter visits a gambling club, where he eventually becomes entangled with, and set up by a group of hostile spies. The movie also stars Lisa Gastoni and Dermot Walsh, who's character becomes involved with Winlatter's wife. The movie runs for 56 minutes approx.

The second movie, "Man From Tangier" opens in Tangier with a murder and the theft of a set of counterfeit plates, desperate to retrieve the plates, top crook Voss (Played by Martin Benson) immediately sends out unwilling moll, Michele (another appearance from the lovely Lisa Gastoni) in an attempt to track them down. With a tragic past, and with good reason for wishing to remain incognito, Michele is easily manipulated by Voss.
Meanwhile, following an innocent visit to a London Barbers, American stuntman Chuck Collins (Robert Hutton) is accidently handed someone else's coat, which lands him at the centre of the intrigue. Made in 1957, the movie runs for 63 minutes approx.

Both films were made in black and white, and the remastered picture and sound quality are very good, no extras or subtitles. Both movies are typical Butchers B-movie thrillers, well-paced with a short running time, and for fans of vintage British B-movies, well worth a look.
