The Lost Hours

David MacDonald (1952)

U Certificate


Our Score
Director David MacDonald had a chequered career, spent largely in the realms of the British B-movie. This is certainly one of his least distinguished ventures, being another of the dreaded quota quickies in which a third-rate Hollywood star gets to play the lead in a threadbare crime story, notable for the cheapness of the sets, the dismal dialogue and the eagerness of the supporting cast. Mark Stevens is the luckless Yank in this ham-fisted tale about amnesia, smuggling and jealousy, which is lifted only by Jean Kent's elegance and Garry Marsh as the dogged flatfoot.


A former pilot wakes up after a drunken reunion, only to discover one of his friends has been murdered and he is the prime suspect. Mystery, starring Mark Stevens and Jean Kent.
