| Strange uncomplicated plot
I am pleased whenever a "lost" film is found.Mind you the BFIs definition of lost often means they don't happen to have a copy.Also it has to be borne in mind that just because a film is lost doesn't mean that it is going to be a rare masterpiece.This film is no more than a mundane B thriller.The tiff is clearly a copy of the Saint,but without the class.The plot of this film revolves around a criminal boss called continuously "the hammer".He is actually a robin hood character as Sally Patch vouchsafes.However it would appear that he is now committing nasty crimes such as murder and blackmail.Clearly he is innocent as John Bentley eventually provides.Now let's hope more lost films come to light.
