The Very Edge

The Very Edge

Cyril Frankel (1962)

A Certificate


Our Score
Another British cheapie that hoped to lure audiences into auditoriums with the sort of sensationalist story they devoured in their Sunday papers. Here we have sexual pervert Jeremy Brett powerless to prevent his obsession with pregnant Anne Heywood passing from harassment to assault, with the result that she loses her baby. In spite of police insistence that they handle the case, her architect husband (Richard Todd) takes the law into his own hands. No longer a bankable star, Todd bases his dispirited perfomance in his stock quality of stuffy indignance.
