Simply excellent. A forgotten British classic film I can't recommend highly enough. If you like cosy black and white old movies, with a great story and acting. This film is for you, and your in for a treat.Based on the true story, of victorian Englands most imformous criminal characters charles Peace. Born in Sheffield like myself, his cunning and sheer contempt for the law, makes him a legend in British crime.
I first came across this film one afternoon when I was around 10 years old. The picture on out Tv was so bad. I had to squint my eyes to see it, as it was on Anglia Tv. and living so far away in Yorkshire.the reception was terrible.But it stuck indelably in my mind.
I have searched for this film ever since without sucess. So imagine, when I came across it here on Amazon. It was like winning the lottery. My friend was born in the same village, and myself a mile away.I know all the areas in this film very well.
The great thing about the film is. They stick so close to the actual story, as is believed,. No fabrication.
A rare classic, great acting, great story. Buy it now!. Then make yourself a drink, open a packet of hobnobs, put your feet up. and enjoy. Bliss.
