The Gentle Trap

Charles Saunders (1960)

PG Certificate


Our Score
In this utterly threadbare British B-movie, an apprentice locksmith goes on the run from the police and local gangsters. It was made by the low-budget production company Butcher's, and everyone involved accordingly made a hash of it; American B-thrillers, by comparison, make mincemeat of it. Only devoted fans of its leading actor and actress (Spencer Teakle and Felicity Young as a rather feeble femme fatale) will bother to watch.


Thieves rob a jeweller's but have the misfortune to be spotted by a powerful gang who resolve to get their hands on the gems - whatever the cost. Crime drama, starring Spencer Teakle, Felicity Young, Dorinda Stevens and Martin Benson.
