Very good film.
4 September 2004 | by rborondaSee all my reviews

I had the great good fortune to tape a showing of this rarely seen movie many years ago when it aired over Los Angeles local television early one morning in late 1978. Apparently, there are no current plans to issue this film on either VHS or DVD. This is a pity.

I have noted that IMDb's write up of this film parrots the same misspelling of Cyril Jilly rather than the correct spelling of Cyril Jolly. I have entered a request for this correction with IMDb but have seen nothing corrected as of this date. I hope that this will be corrected in due course.

The book written by Jolly, The Vengeance of Private Pooley, is worth looking for on the various internet book search engines. It makes for compelling reading.
