Reviews

Classic British murder-mystery, starring Alastair Sim. In August 1944, German flying bombs are raining down on London. Directly under their flight path is a small cottage hospital, where the tension is becoming unbearable for the dedicated team of surgeons and nurses. Their close-knit community is torn apart by jealousy and terrible secrets, and when the local postman is brought in, delirious but trying to impart an urgent message - the murders begin. The eccentric and irreverent Inspector Cockrill (Sim) of the Kent County Police is called in to investigate a truly baffling case where everyone has secrets, but where no-one appears to have a motive.

They say you get what you pay for. This is a superior crime thriller notable for the intricacy of its plot, the acid wit of the script and above all the superb moonlit black and white cinematography.

Potential buyers of this cheap Network DVD version should note that the picture, though acceptable, is not as sharp as it might be and the sound is generally poor. There appears to have have been minimal, if any, effort at restoration. Happily, there is at the time of writing a Criterion version soon to be released. I for one will upgrade.

Mr DeRiemer below offers a lengthy review which will ruin any chance of enjoying the ending by revealing the plot. I haven't seen the film so this is hardly a review but I might save others from this man's musings. I have asked Amazon to consider removing it.

Another tour-de-force from the wonderful Alistair Sim and an object lesson in comic timing and delivery of a terrific script from a master. I hesitate to call it his finest hour as he had so many! The plot is splendid and the supporting cast - a who's who of British 1940s cinema - is first rate. I do agree that the quality of the DVD could have been better though.

Green for Danger, is a super1947 Frank Launder/Sidney Gilliat murder film set in England at a small hospital during world war 2. A patient dies and only six people -- two doctors and four nurses -- could have done it.

Great story and really funny at times.

I've seen this film a hundred times and I've never found a fault in it, direction, photography, script, and of course the wonderful acting. Its all there, romance, murder, suspence, humour. I found the DVD quality fine.

A very stylish and atmospheric film. Mr Sim is at his hight here making a good film a classic. However it's about time it got the TLC it needs and deserves. I'm sure with the VHS, many DVD versions and TV showings it has paid it's due to those companies so now it might be nice of them to get the digital arts busy on it so we can see it as it was new. Then they could do a bluray too.

Green For Danger is one of those rare finds - a really good thriller without any bad language or sex(might have something to do with it being made in the forties). I dare say it may seem very dated to those addicted to the fast-paced action-packed movies we are more used to, but don't knock it till you try it. Incidentally, while I love films from the forties, I am not of that era myself, being a mere youngster of 53, not even born when this was made. But seriously it's a real little gem, and Alastair Sim(possibly better known from the(original) Ladykillers is superb as the inspector trying to crack the case.
For any fans of a good thriller I would highly recommend it.

I remember this film with great fondness but couldn't manage to watch as much as half of this terrible transfer before switching off. Some of the shots (particularly the exteriors) are so murky that it's almost impossible to see what's going on. One reviewer suggested that the poor quality added to the period charm. Not for me I'm afraid. I've sent off the (expensive) Criterion Collection version which is supposed to be restored and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I struggle to see how anyone could imagine putting out a release of this quality was acceptable.

What a shame.
