You Pay Your Money

Maclean Rogers (1957)

U Certificate


Our Score
The much maligned Butcher's Film Service holds an unenviable place in the history of British cinema. By sponsoring dozens of low-budget programmers, it enabled young talent on both sides of the camera to gain an industry foothold. Yet it mostly churned out dismal offerings such as this tale of kidnap and rare book smuggling, which is given only the merest modicum of respectability by the presence of Hugh McDermott and Honor Blackman. Although he started out in comedy, Maclean Rogers had handled several mystery movies, but here his adaptation of Michael Cronin's novel is as flat as his direction.


A couple attempt to expose a gang stealing valuable Arabic manuscripts. Thriller, starring Hugh McDermott, Honor Blackman, Jane Hylton and Ivan Samson.
