Review

Rating: 1 out of 5.

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.
