| Quaint QQ
Well, you've had two US reviews for this TOTALLY British "QQ" film, so here is my take UK on it.

If you want to be whisked back to a darkened, smoky, smelly, flea-pit pre-war cinema, watching a second feature 'B' movie then this is ideal!!

Plot is quite good and offers a reasonable ending although you will need to make up your own 'red-herrings' as they are thin on the ground, so that when "all" is explained you sit there thinking but...............

The only reason my wife and I wanted to watch this is for Alastair Sim. (I'm doing a personal 'season' of his films at the moment and have just finished reading his bio.) He is the undoubted (debut?) star and about the only person in the film who you could say knew how to act. A couple of the bit part actors were quite good BUT Basil Sydney………oh, dear. That stilted delivery, AND those long pauses were verging on comical. I really am surprised that he went on to be in other films right up into the late 60s shortly before he died, whereas Judy Gunn only carried on in films for another two years. She certainly out-acted Basil Sydney.

Yes, quaint.
