Reviews

Paul Temple Returns', John Bentley - playing Temple for the third time - was completely at ease in the role, he seldom gave a bad performance and he was well supported here by Patricia Dainton (as Steve). The plot revolves around Temple's efforts to aid the police in solving a series of gruesome murders and leaves us with the inevitable feeling of 'However could Scotland Yard have managed without him...'

Paul Temple was written by Francis Durbridge who became famous for his mystery writing. Paul Temple and wife Steve featured in a number of radio serials from the 30s to the 60s where episodes often had a "cliffhanger" ending. These serials became immensely popular and many are available (original or re-made) on BBC audio publications.

A later TV series was not written by Durbridge and just used the characters of Paul Temple and Steve but without other characters such as Sir Graham Forbes.

In the late 40s and 50s there were a number of attempts to transfer Paul Temple to film versions, four in all I believe, of which this is the last. Unlike the TV series this is a Durbridge story "Paul Temple Intervenes" which was one of the earlier radio serials. Since it is not in episodes there is no opportunity for the "cliffhanger" episodes but manages to maintain an air of mystery nonetheless. Paul is called in to help Scotland Yard who are baffled by a series of murders by "The Marquis"

It is in Black and White and has been digitally re-mastered though there are still the odd skips and cracks, which just adds to the atmosphere of the old film in my opinion. I think it works much better than "Send for Paul Temple" which has also been recently released by Renown films. It features an early film appearance by Christopher Lee as Sir Felix Reybourn an archaeologist at the centre of the mystery.

If you like the British 50s black and white B movie type thriller/mystery then I'm sure you will enjoy this one.

This film moves at quite a pace and is another Nettlefold Studios based production. John Bentley was the star of many good second features and this is one of those. There are plenty of twists as you would expect from Francis Durbridge and all the cast are worthy. Directed by veteran Maclean Rogers in 1952 Patricia Dainton takes the role of Steve Temple. A good clear print has been used and this is a long awaited release. Lets have the other John Bentley, Paul Temple films soon. Good value too.

John Bentley is his usual efficient self and has good support from Patricia Dainton as Steve in this remastered film version of "Paul Temple Intervenes" (Who is the Marquis?). Most of the the familiar characters are there: Sir Graham Forbes, Detectives Bradley and Ross, etc. I think that Bentley makes a good screen detective but, for me, he isn't quite Paul Temple in much the same way that Margaret Rutherford isn't quite Miss Marple! Very enjoyable in its own right, PAUL TEMPLE RETURNS is best viewed as a John Bentley film, rather than a Paul Temple. This was John Bentley's third Paul Temple film - I hope the other two are released soon.

The film Paul Temple Returns is based on the 1942 radio serial Paul Temple Intervenes (a fascinating recording of the original BBC broadcast available on CD) is a typical Temple adventure and the flavour of the radio serials is well captured in this above average B movie.

As a great Paul Temple fan I found John Bentley and Patricia Dainton convincing in the lead roles.

The box includes an excellent five page illustrated account of the history of Butcher films.

Digitally re-mastered (not restored) from a good print with only occasional short patches of run lines this can be thoroughly recommended.
