4.0 out of 5 stars TWO WORTHY OBSCURITIES FROM SIMPLY MEDIA
I confess! I didn't know of the existence of either of these films, but on reading C.Fuller's review and seeing Honor Blackman was in one and Barabara Shelley in the other I was persuaded, and I am not disapointed. THE DELAVINE AFFAIR is quite unusual in that Peter Reynolds is the hero, and a pretty good fist he makes of it too. He is a freelance journalist married(?) to...

Interesting to see these 1950s B movies but both of them could have been more slick
and the acting a bit more tighter if you see what I mean.
I liked looking at the cars in The End of the Line and seeing Barbara Shelly in an earlier role
as the fem fatale she could always do that soo well!! This is the better film in many ways unfortunately

I confess! I didn't know of the existence of either of these films, but on reading C.Fuller's review and seeing Honor Blackman was in one and Barabara Shelley in the other I was persuaded, and I am not disapointed. THE DELAVINE AFFAIR is quite unusual in that Peter Reynolds is the hero, and a pretty good fist he makes of it too. He is a freelance journalist married(?) to Honor and they get involved in a murder. There are plot holes aplenty, but it would spoil your fun if I listed them. A violent fight at the end, and some good pacing direction make this fun. (Reynolds and Dermot Walsh should have made a film together-Who has the silliest hair??). The second film THE END OF THE LINE is another murder mystery with the Ice Cold Barbara Shelley on top form. Supported by that well known famous Polish (sorry, American) actor Alan Baxter, who really isn't very good, but don't let that put you off. I preferred the "DELAVINE" but both are interesting and good examples of the cheap British "B" of the 50's. Good Prints for both, picture and sound (I found the sound fine on both). Recomended to enthusiasts.

This review is from: The Delavine Affair / The End Of The Line [DVD] (DVD)
This pairing has 2 quite different films the first being a Rex Banner comedy thriller made at Nettlefold studios which moves at quite a lick and is well worth watching. Main stars are Peter Reynolds & Honor Blackman. Plenty of location filming. The second film is a Fortress production made at Southall studios starring American actor Alan Baxter and Barbara Shelley. The film has an American noir feeling and the narrative spoken by Alan Baxter is effective. This film also has a good role for character player Arthur Gomez. Picture quality on the first film is a little washed out. Again plenty of location filming and some good musical numbers. The soundtrack on the second film is very rough which is a shame. Pricewise still good value. Look out for more 2 Film Collection releases from Simply Media.

the American lead Alan Baxter is very wooden in his part .
