| Sub-Hitch exciting comedy-thriller
This, had Hitch directed it, would have been considered one of his lesser efforts yet it has many of the elements and one of the stars, (Godfrey Tearle) of his "39 Steps" and lacks nothing in pace or sly humour. Hugh Williams was very much in the Robert Donat mould, albeit a national rather than international star.

www.britishpictures.com warns against the easy dismissal of British films post 1927 as "quota quickies" arguing that "The big budget Things To Come, for example, can't be regarded as a quota-quickie yet producer Alexander Korda came to Britain because of the protection the quota offered." while fully accepting that there were dreadful low budget efforts which came into being because of the quota.

This is all round, not less than a middle-ranking film in terms of stars,ambition, writing, direction and budget. Reminiscent of silent car/train chase films this steams along at a rattling pace but manages to amuse with the semi-comic conman and woman who get caught up in the plot.

Thoroughly entertaining but lacking the brilliance of the Master.
