The Avenging Hand

The Avenging Hand

Victor Hanbury (1936)

A Certificate


Our Score
Staying in a gloomy English hotel, Chicago gangster Noah Beery tracks down the killer of an old match-seller with the help of a hotel clerk and then disappears back to America. Running at not much more than an hour, this somewhat confused thriller is feeble, forgettable and largely forgotten. Beery is a bright spark in the midst of the murk and an obscure British supporting cast.


An old match-seller is murdered, but it is left to an American gangster to find the killer. Drama, starring Noah Beery, Louis Borel and Kathleen Kelly.
