Harold Huth (1948)

A Certificate


Our Score
A relishably bad British crime drama set in an unreal Soho underworld of spivs and nightclubs. It's a compendium of clichés as two army friends end up on opposite sides of the law - one a policeman, the other a black-market racketeer who marries a good girl but dallies with a glamorous cabaret singer. Particularly enjoyable are Maxwell Reed as the swaggering villain, Christine Norden as the vicious blonde vamp, and Michael Medwin in a spot of light relief as an indignant pickpocket. Benjamin Frankel's score is better than the film deserves.
