| Nothing Special
Sean Lynch is on probation, assigned to Ian Fleming, when he meets Beth Rogan in a music shop. Soon, they are getting on like a house on fire and she gets him a job as a design apprentice in her father's fabric factory. When his wallet turns up missing, however, he's accused and let go and winds up holding off the police with a gun.

This second feature is full of well-meaning intentions about the need to give youngsters a chance lest they tread an evil path, but it falls too quickly into melodramatic claptrap, abetted by a score that uses Tschaikovsky as its major theme. Alas, Mr. Lynch offers a sullen, almost whiny performance, Miss Rogan is a perky nullity, Mr. Fleming is well meaning but droning and ineffectual.... and makes the message of the film look futile. Nicholas Roeg is the camera operator for Jimmy Wilson as the cinematographer, and together they don't offer anything more interesting than shots lifted from 1930s crime dramas. Like far too many of the Danziger Brothers' productions, it takes what had worked in the past, offers it anew and results in a something utterly forgettable.
