Reviews

This 1951 Nettlefold production was directed by Lewis Gilbert, who went on to direct a whole string of hit films, Reach for the Sky , three James Bond films, Alfie , Shirley Valentine and many more. In this early work with the help of an excellent cast, the director shows his skills in aking a fairly simple plot most entertaining. Laurence Harvey is Mag Maguire a likeable fairground boxer and Maxwell Reed, Eddie Racer a motorbike daredevil rider. The mutual love interest is the lovely Susan Shaw. Good roles from Leslie Dwyer and Meredith Edwards.

A crisp and perfect DVD transfer of this relatively obscure 1951 British crime melodrama is a most welcome addition to Renown's wonderful series. I enjoyed it a great deal.
The plot is not extraordinary but director Lewis Gilbert (who later went on to direct such famous British films as 'Reach for the sky') breathes a lot of life into it - both Laurence Harvey as the fairground boxer who idolizes a daredevil wall of death rider,(played by Maxwell Reed) and Susan Shaw as his girl friend give most pleasant performances. They are very well photographed and make a handsome couple, Harvey's dark good looks are at their most effective in the boxing scenes. I was especially impressed by Susan Shaw's performance, she is now a largely forgotten actress but in this role she exhibited many of the same qualities which made Patricia Roc such a big star. The atmosphere of the rather seedy fun fair is well re-created and it was interesting to see the location footage of the old Walthamstow stadium.

The ever reliable Leslie Dwyer and Hermione Baddeley lead an excellent supporting cast of familiar faces. It was nice to see briefly towards the end the well known face of Harry Fowler, who died recently.

It's another vintage title I can recommend without reservation.

I recall seeing this little known classic B Movie on BBC TV during the 1960s. It has not been shown on TV for years, so I was glad of the opportunity to purchase this at a pretty good price.

Set mainly around a fairground, with some scenes filmed at a local speedway track, the story centres around the relationship between two men, 'Racer' Peskett, a motorbike daredevil rider, and Mag Maguire, a fairground boxer, played by Maxwell Reed and Laurence Harvey respectively. The love interest is provided by Lillian played by Susan Shaw. With a criminal element and organised crime being played out in the background, the three characters struggle to stay out of reach of the local police who are investigating the criminal activities within the fairground and the speedway.

Skilfully directed by Lewis Gilbert who went on to direct some fine films during the 1950s and 1960s (Reach For The Sky, at least three Bond films, Shirley Valentine) he maintains a decent pace despite it being rather talky in places. It is of course, the characters who carry the film to its dramatic conclusion in the speedway track. Older viewers will recognise that very fine character actor Harry Fowler during the final scenes. Other notable character actors who appear are Arthur Mullard, Meredith Edwards, Hermione Baddeley, and Eric Pohlmann.

Very good picture with decent sound despite its age. The remastering has been very good indeed, which makes this film a worthwhile purchase.

Having enjoyed Maxwell Reed's performance in another 1950s film titled: Blackout, and also liking Susan Shaw, having seen her in The Woman In Question,
I was keen to get this DVD. The strange title could be taken from the Emily Dickinson's poem: There Is Another Sky, which contains the line: There is
another Sun-shine, Tho it be darkness there; - relating to Maxwell Reed's bad character. I don't normally like Laurence Harvey, but in this film
he is so friendly and decent that I warmed to him. Hermione Baddeley is, I find, always worth watching; although in this film her part is not as good
as her brilliant one in: The Woman In Question, - where she was pitted against Susan Shaw. As a lover of 1950s British black & white films, I reckon
that: Wall Of Death, to use its American title, is well worth watching; but I didn't enjoy it as much as the other two films that I mentioned: The
Woman In Question, and: Blackout.
