First ever Double Film Bill of Blackout/Bond of Fear. A double bill of great British suspense films. Blackout stars Eric Pohlmann and Maxwell Reed, who plays a blind man trying to piece together the evidence to capture a vicious gang of crooks and murderers. In Bond of Fear a murderer is on the run and decides to kidnap a family who are taking their caravan abroad. Holding their son at gunpoint, he forces them to evade the massive police manhunt.
I remember seeing this film on TV when I was a kid and was totally absorbed. I still like this type of old British movie. I think it's the good old-fashioned storyline with lots of suspense that does it for me. So here we have good old Dermot Walsh minding his own business, taking his family on a trip with the caravan in tow and ending up with a wanted criminal holding them hostage whilst on the move with their trailer. For me, the acting is more than decent and for anyone like me who has a penchant for rather cheaply made, but nonetheless good, black and white British second features of this era, it would be a very decent purchase --www.imdb.com
The film is full of actors familiar from that period,including one of my favourite actors of that time Eric Pohleman.He really was a superb villain.The fact that he had a continental accent meant that this made him sound even more sinister to the post war audiences.Also featured is Michael Brennan who must have beaten up more leading men than he had hot dinners.Kynaston Reeves who usually played Judges has a longer part than usual.In all a entertaining thriller --www.imdb.com

Bond of Fear stars Irish born actor Dermot Walsh. I watched every episode of his Richard the Lionheart television series when I was a child. Later I saw him on the stage in London and on regional tour. He was a good and reliable actor whose earlier starring roles for the big producers had provided him with invaluable experience. Playing his wife is Jane Barrett a prolific BBC radio repertory company actress who made very few films and sadly died in 1969 aged only 46. She is well cast as the worried wife and mother having to cope with the demands of the crook played by Canadian actor John Colicos. Like Dermot he worked on stage a great deal but still managed to appear in scores of films and television plays. Henry Cass directs the action and brings in a tight performance. There is plenty of location filming and the director of photography is Monty Berman. John Gilling wrote the screenplay. Odeon have Australian prints of both films, the picture quality is fine but there is quite a lot of noise on the soundtracks.
BOND OF FEAR: I didn't enjoy this as much, mainly because one knows in advance how the plot (kidnap of a boy on a family holiday) is going to develop, ie the kidnapper doesn't get away with it. However, it's nicely presented & acted, though whether you could really describe it as noir is debatable. All in all, though, an excellent value double-bill.

An interesting pair of 1950s Brit B pictures, with usual stars, such as Dermot Walsh, Maxwell Reed, et all. Blackout is the better one of the two.Published on 9 July 2014 by ALF LEEK
