Lowe and McLaglen team in top form
22 March 2020 | by mooreesecdSee all my reviews

A murder yarn that is well written and well acted by a top notch cast. In addition to the two great lead actors, Ralph Ince, Adrienne Ames, Noel Francis, Richard Arlen and Ralph Richardson are all perfect in their roles. Grand entertainment.
