Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Gilded Cage is a black and white British thriller from 1955.The film stars- using the term very loosely - the 'second-feature' beefcake Hollywood actor Alex Nicol.The story is about a US Air Force security man (Nicol)and his errant brother Harry (Michael Alexander)who is implicated in a plot to smuggle a painting,the Gilden Cage, out of London. The chief villain operating out of the (obligatory)Pallette (get it?) night club is played by Clifford Evans.The action - including several murders, fights and chases is played out against the backdrops of a theatre, art galleries,and the Thames riverfront around St Katherine's Dock.

The film is unremarkable and at times the action is implausible.Ursula Howells offers some emotionally tinged glamour early in the piece but is soon killed off.Nicol is suitably macho,puts himself about a lot, and does his virile bit as the 'good guy'.Veronica Hurst is the leading lady. Described on IMDB as "alluring blonde leading lady of British films of the 1950s" she is here certainly not alluring and we cannot tell if she was blonde as the faded black and white imagery is unclear. Sadly her performance is as flat as a pancake-not helped by the twin-set she wears and plastic handbag she totes throughout the mayhem!
DVD Image quality is only average.Some moody London locations add a bit to the hoped-for noirish quality.Sound is flaky and sometime unsynchronized.John Gilling directed competently but went on to bigger and better pictures. Not one of Renown's finest recoveries!
