| Gregor is slap-happy!
In the 1950s and 60s, many American actors went to Europe to star in their films. Most of these were second and third-tier actors...and in the case of "3 Steps to the Gallows", third-tier American actor Scott Brady stars in this British mystery/suspense film.

When the story begins, Gregor (Brady) arrives in London to see his brother. Surprisingly, however, he learns that while he was off at sea, his brother was convicted of murder is will be executed within a few days! Not surprisingly, Gregor investigates on his own to see what he can uncover...and he discovers a vast conspiracy. What's next? See the film.

I had to chuckle at this film a bit. After all, do the Brits see Americans as being like Brady?! In the film, is character investigates mostly by beating up people! And, he's apparently very good at it!! So, it's not like this is the most complex or nuanced character! Overall, mildly entertaining if not a bit mindless.
