A British drama/thriller that's worth the detour. Each character is well observed, the rythm of the film is astounding and the final scene in the shunting yard a marvel. Writer/director Robert Hamer is not the director of ONE and ONLY movie, Kind Hearts and Coronets, after all. Masterpiece.
Better and more compelling than most modern dramas. There's a stunningly beautiful chase through a rail yard toward the end which would not be nearly so striking and effective in color as it is in black and white.
Quite a good late 40s Brit crime drama. Also, was Susan Shaw a babe or what? Its the Googie Withers show here though, who brings a lot to her character. Never really a household name, at least stateside, she is one of the finest British actresses of her era. Check out Dead of Night, a superior film and imo a classic horror flick, which she also starred in. Solid 4 star film here though
Todo puede pasar en un domingo. No por la historia central, sino por las historias secundarias que se desenvuelven sin ser marginadas el uno del otra. Es interesante como cada una tiene un atractivo por sí solo. Lo mejor del filme, la secuencia de la persecución final.
