| A well structured portrayal of an old story
The story is much used – a family being dragged down by their dead end street – but this one stands up okay. Hetty (Sylvia Sims) is caught between tearaway brother Michael (Melvyn Hayes) and smoothy gangster Wilkie (Herbert Lom). While Ronald Howard's Frank dances a fine line between being a cop and supporting his neighbourhood.

A decent story develops as Frank, Michael & Wilkie weave in and out of Hetty's life. The film introduces a number of rich supporting characters to complement the story.

The actors measure their roles well although Hayes' emotion tends to grate. Lom is the pick as the gangster who can switch between menacing and tender without any difficulty.
