Quite passable.
9 September 2019 | by alexanderdavies-99382See all my reviews

An agreeable time-filler which manages to maintain my interest, despite the movie including all the usual trimmings. Derek Farr as the lead is a bit devoid of any kind of charisma but he's not bad as the investigating police officer. The set used for his office at the old Scotland Yard building, is identical to all the other "Edgar Wallace" films. No big names here (as I expected) but the cast do their best with ordinary material.
