4.0 out of 5 stars Good story a little light on the sound...
I was looking forward to the film and enjoyed the story and performances plus location filming. All fine.
My only reservation is that the sound should be louder and at a consistant level. It is still a good film so give it a play. Renown have released some good and rare films look out for their other titles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has some historical interest.
Of the two productions based on the same story (the other being "Blackout" Blackout/Bond Of Fear [DVD]) I would go for "Blackout" with Maxwell Reed in the driving seat. Having grown up with "Blackout" I cannot say I was ever comfortable with "Blind Spot". True it has some historical interest featuring as it does younger versions of Rutherford and Caine, but Gordon Jackson...

4.0 out of 5 stars Another enjoyable Butchers offering, 28 May 2011

This 1958 Butchers films production is based on the earlier 1950 film "Blackout".
Robert MacKenzie stars in the lead role here, playing Dan Adams, a US army officer blinded in the war, who after being dropped off at what he believes to be a friends apartment, is then confronted by two intruders after discovering a dead body in the living room, and is eventually struck to the floor.

Following an operation in hospital, Adams regains his sight, then after being discharged he begins his own investigations, which uncover a diamond smuggling operation. The movie has a few twists along the way.
MacKenzie is supported by a strong cast which includes Gordon Jackson, Delphi Lawrence and John Le Mesurier. Yet again George Pastell stars in a familiar role, playing a shady character, also, look out for a younger, fresh-faced Michael Caine in a brief but effective appearance.

This is another typical Butchers B-movie thriller, well-paced with a relatively short running time of 68 minutes. I found this to be an enjoyable little thriller, and for fans of vintage British B-movies of the 1950's/60's, this is worth a look.
This Renown release has been restored and remastered, the black and white 16.9 widescreen picture quality is good, although sound quality is a little uneven. No extras or subtitles.
