I watched this yesterday - Gordon Jackson has a minor, albeit very important role in this 1950s thriller.
When reporter Rex Banner (played by actor Peter Reynolds) discovers a man he was supposed to meet is dead, he becomes the chief suspect. Banner knows there is money in the story of who killed the man so decides to find out who did it by making his own enquiries, which will also ensure he is proven innocent. Banner does this with the help of his wife Maxine (Honor Blackman). Gordon Jackson plays Peter Florian, an old friend of Maxine's who shows up at various points in the story.
The film also stars Michael Balfour, who has been in a stack of shows we all know on here including 'Department S' and 'The Prisoner'. What's nice about this film is that there is a lot of location shooting around parts of London and we get to see Gordon Jackson with a shooter having a punch-up. This is another B movie classic for me, it's not the greatest film in the world but it does have all the elements of a fine 1950s short film - a murder, a chase, a bit of double cross, old bill chasing bad guys and a remote farm run by an old woman - what else do you need?
7/10 - this is a very fine way to pass an hour, sadly the story is a little too predictable, which is why I have not gone into masses of detail here with the review. Overall, I think most readers here will enjoy this one and Gordon Jackson as always, is on top form. At time of writing this film can be found on a certain video sharing website and it is doing the rounds on Talking Pictures TV.
