Our Score
Retitled Code of Scotland Yard in the States, this reworking of Edward Percy's hit play is a splendid showcase for that master of malevolence Oscar Homolka. With an accent thicker than his eyebrows, he is suitably shifty as an antiques dealer who not only trades in stolen goods but is also a fugitive from Devil's Island. However, he is occasionally in serious danger of having the picture filched from under his nose by Kenneth Griffith, who is revoltingly effective as a blackmailing assistant who threatens to ruin the musical career of Homolka's daughter, Muriel Pavlow. stagey, but played to the hilt.

Summary

An ex-con murders his blackmailing book-keeper in an effort to protect his violinist daughter's blossoming career. Thriller, starring Oscar Homolka, Muriel Pavlow, Derek Farr and Irene Handl.
