The Hypnotist

The Hypnotist

Montgomery Tully (1957)

A Certificate


Our Score
Responsible for dozens of crime quickies in the Scotland Yard featurette series, the Irish-born director Montgomery Tully was one of the key figures in the British B-movie industry during the 1950s and 60s. This is one of his better efforts, as psychiatrist Roland Culver attempts to frame disturbed test pilot Paul Carpenter for the murder of his wife. Culver does a nice line in evil manipulation and Patricia Roc is typically spirited as the girlfriend standing by her man. But poor old Carpenter could only have given a decent performance had he really been hypnotised.
