Reviews

All three films in the Dick Barton trilogy from Hammer studios, starring Don Stannard as Dick Barton, the hero of the popular 1940s radio series, who fights foreign conspirators armed with secret super weapons that threaten the British nation. In 'Dick Barton, Special Agent' (1948), Dick is assigned to investigate some strange and sinister goings-on at a quiet English seaside resort. He soon uncovers a Nazi germ warfare plot, which - if he does not act swiftly - will result in a deadly outbreak of cholera across Britain. In 'Dick Barton Strikes Back' (1949), a sinister sound ray is threatening the nation - and Dick must track down its source, an investigation which culminates in a showdown with the sound ray's inventor, Fouracada (Sebastian Cabot) at the top of Blackpool Tower. And in 'Dick Barton at Bay' (1950), Dick and his partner Snowey White (George Ford) must race against time to rescue a weapons scientist, Professor Mitchell (Percy Walsh) and his beautiful daughter, Mary (Joyce Linden), who have been kidnapped along with the professor's latest invention, a ray that can explode any unstable element aboard an aircraft in flight.

Before the coming of the upstart 007, in the miserable times after WW2,there was a special agent to defend Britain against wicked and evil enemies. Be it escaped Nazis planning germ warfare, bald Commies seizing the new death-ray weapon or corrupted noblemen and musical gypsies that kill whole villages with ultrasonic sound emitters: Dick Barton is going to stop them.
Dick Barton was Hammers first real hit and (like Quatermass) adapted from a sucessful BBC series. It is an old debate wether Ian Flemings renowned character James Bond was inspired by this.
The print quality is (especially in dark scenes) not optimal and in the third part the soundtrack seems to be damaged in some places but that was to be expected and should not annoy anyone.
This may be trash but it's quite entertaining and I don't regret to have bought it.

Three, genuinely, entertaining films. Okay, they are nowhere near as slick as contemporary productions but, suspend disbelief, sit back and enjoy.
