Another film in which Derek Farr heads the credit lists and yet plays a comparatively minor role. (See Wanted for Murder Wanted For Murder [DVD].)

An interesting film though one has the sensation of being on something of a treadmill - the action passes but seems to get nowhere precisely.

I had read some information on this film and I am pleased to say I was not disappointed. It is a little "tongue in cheek" throughout, but that doesn't detract from the overall suspense of the plot. Gangsters, robbers, murderers and thugs, taken on by the interpid reporter and a gang of boxers. (A little reminiscent of "Hue and Cry", but with the "gang" being older men).

I enjoyed the film throughout. It wasn't too predictable and the acting was good, as were the sets. Definitely one to watch, but not quite certain as to how often. A very young Nigel Patrick is almost unrecognisable, with his long trenchcoat and coarse accent - an excellent role and played admirably. I have always been a fan of Stanley Holloway and it was good to see him again. A very versatile actor and quite realistic as the Police Inspector. Some good moments of suspense, some excellent "punch-ups" (although I did wonder whether there would appear "balloon texts" (as in "Batman and Robin"), saying "Sock", "Pow", "Thud" etc. (hence the tongue-in-cheek feel).

Enjoyable, good value and fun. And Nigel Patrick.......... no, I won't spoil it that much for you. You find out for yourself!

This is an oddity, but a good interesting one. To be honest I don't think the writers or director knew whether to make it funny or tough, and as a result I don't feel it suuceeds in either category (Funnily enough, Film Buffs will know that Joseph Calleia played as good as the same role - a gangster - strictly for laughs in "The Noose Hangs High" that very year 1948. Perhaps he was unsure how to play the role? After all his co-stars in that were Abbott and Costello!) I love British/English heroes of that period and Derek Farr takes the biscuit as an ex army officer called, seriously, "Jumbo". Carole Landis is good, but to me the surprise of the film is Nigel Patrick (and I'm sure he did play it for comedy). The "punch up" at the climax is a scream - no one actually lands a blow at least in the long shots. The film is full of faces (Michael Brennan) and actresses that I have never heard of before or since, but are actually prettygood. At 91' it'smaybe 10' too long, but it's a must see, and great fun, full of period atmosphere and I thoroughly recomend it as a great period piece.

Adding to the previous reviews, Carole Landis as the feisty lead who
single-handedly drives the film along (who later killed herself),
Hay Petrie as the really scary killer "Barber", and Hone Glendinning
whose camera work was excellent. Nigel Patrick's character was odd in
that he ran the gang like a Hospital Nurse. A period oddity where
hardly anyone seemed to better themselves afterwards . . .
