| Strangely Interesting
If you can get over the rather ridiculous plot line, the film holds interest quite well. That said, it only runs for an hour- which is probably just as well. Of the main players, Ayers is very stiff and (I found) to be an unappealing character. It is difficult to generate much sympathy when you wander through the movie in a perpetual bad mood Bruce Seaton and Alan Wheatley give professional performances and there is the lovely June Thorburn to add gloomier. Thorburn only appears half way through (more the pity) and her character is hardly developed at all. For all the faults of the movie, it is a pleasant enough time filler. Of particular interest is the background of how things were in the 50s(I imagine it was shot in London somewhere).
