I have never heard of the phrase 'Ticket of Leave', but I can safely assume from watching the story that it is referring to a person who is paroled out of prison.
The basic idea behind "The Ticket of Leave Man" is decent and the story should have been a lot better. After all, it does involve an evil criminal who not only steals but garrotes his victims! And, the guy later frames an innocent man only because he hopes to one day use him in his gang--but first he needs to break the man! However, the story itself is quite poor--mostly because of some horrible over-acting by Tod Slaughter who plays the evil killer. Subtle his performance isn't--and he even snickers a bit like Snidely Whiplash! Additionally, a few of the other performances are less than stellar. Because of the high cheese factor, it's really hard to recommend the film--unless you are making up a list of movies that SHOULD have been better or ones that featured very hammy performances.
