Echoes of The Third Man
A simple tale of whether body is dead or not, and the London sewers is here given an artistic twist, with some of the shots in the dark having a distinct echo of THE THIRD MAN. It's nice to see this twist, reminding us that B Pictures often have distinguished antecedents, if we are prepared to look for them.
