Wolf Rilla (1955)

PG Certificate


Our Score
At various stages during his career Wolf Rilla proved himself to be a highly competent director, notably with his chilling version of Village of the Damned. That makes this road smash of a picture all the more disappointing. It packs every kind of quota quickie cliché into its 66 minutes, as plucky garage owner Rona Anderson turns to dashing driving ace Paul Carpenter to help her repulse the threat of a charlatan creditor. The mediocrity is unrelenting, with the race sequences every bit as hackneyed as the risible melodrama, although Susan Shaw briefly brightens things up as a shameless floozy.


A racing driver helps a woman to protect her dead father's garage from being taken over by a greedy rival. Drama, starring Paul Carpenter and Rona Anderson.
