5.0 out of 5 stars Solid b-movie fare from Merton Park Studios, 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scales of Justice - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Between 1962 and 1967, thirteen short films were made in The Scales of Justice series. Destined for theatrical release as support features, they went on to garner a modest cult status when they were later screened on television.

Although The Scales of Justice has never had the status of other Merton Park productions of the time, such as the Edgar Wallace Mysteries, these thirteen films are good solid fare, showcasing many familiar faces from this era of British film and television.

Derek Francis, Bernard Archard, Ray Barrett, Peter Barkworth, Garfield Morgan, Ronald Leigh-Hunt, Reginald Marsh, Barrie Ingham, Keith Barron, James Ellis, Alexandra Bastedo and Justine Lord are amongst the impressive roster of acting talent. If those names mean anything to you, then it's a safe bet that you will enjoy this release.

Each film is introduced by Edgar Lustgarten, who had penned a number of books detailing true-life criminal cases. The Scales of Justice reflects this, as every story is based on actual events.

With an average running time of 30 minutes, these don't outstay their welcome, but are long enough to give the excellent casts a chance to flex their acting muscles.

Shot in 1:66:1, it's pleasing to note that for the majority of stories Network have been able to source good-quality prints. Most are in B&W, with the last handful of stories shot in Colour.

Highly recommended.
