Too Many Improbables.
- Dancing with Crime review by NC
A taxi-driver and his girl ignore police advice and decide to investigate a black-market ring that has killed their friend. A routine crime story, professionally done, but with a preposterous ending which relegates it from a 'quite good' to a 'if you've got nothing better to do'.
The cast are good, the dialogue is a fraction above average, and there is a noir-ish atmosphere, with (studio-bound) small, crowded, night-time streets; pub and police-station interiors; and guns drawn at every opportunity.
Much of the action takes place in a night-club, and perhaps the main interest of the film lies in catching a glimpse of such a venue, post-war (1947), complete with orchestra, M.C., and dance hostesses.
Diana Dors and Dirk Bogarde make very early, and uncredited, career appearances.
