Interesting Old Sixties Effort
- Girl in the Headlines review by Cato
It's good to watch these old British efforts from the past, quite a few of them B films in the days when we got two films in our afternoon at The Odeon, often with only a few of us in the audience. This one is an interesting crime thriller, and in its way was a noble effort with some good actors giving their best. This one's got Ian Hendry, Jeremy (Sherlock Holmes) Brett, and Ronald Fraser in it, and it's a valiant effort, with a rather OTT and unlikely plot , ending with a very surprising murderer, that nobody would have suspected. Never mind, it's a good nostalgic look at old British cinema in the days when we didn't watch so much TV to get our thrills.
