Standard Merton Park b film
10 January 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

When I hear that evocative theme music and the bust of Edgar Wallace I can imagine myself back in the circle of the AND Golders Green at around 430 on a Sunday afternoon.This film is one of dozens of B films made at Merton Park.The film gets off to an exciting start with a policeman hanging on for dear life to a Ford Zephyr travelling at around 40 miles per hour.After that it is all rather downbeat hill with a pedestrian plot and a rather laboured climax.Anthony Oliver plays the policeman who for some reason decides to try and get the gang on his own.Given a desperate release by Network by virtue of the director Gerry Anderson who went on to greater success with puppets.
