This entertaining 1948 crime drama, directed by George King, tells the story of Jim Harding, (Douglass Montgomery) who after the war, finds himself selling baldness and stomach potions at a fairground in Blackpool.
With his wife, Diana (Patricia Burke) having an affair, and Jim himself falling for another woman (played by Hazel Court) Jim's wife refuses to give him a divorce, the frustrated Jim now plans to murder his wife.
This vintage black and white movie has a Hitchcock feel to it, with a noir atmosphere, and is nicely paced with good performances. The rest of the cast includes Ronald Shiner, Kenneth Griffith and Michael Medwin.
Having been considered "lost", the movie was eventually tracked down by the good folk at Odeon Entertainment, who appreciate the fact that theres a market for these great old films. The movie has been restored, and picture and sound quality are good. The extras are a collection of best of British trailers, no subtitles. The included 2-page leaflet features details of the director and the main stars.
For lovers of 1940's crime drama, this is well worth a look.
