Diana Dors at her height - Tread Softly Stranger review by MD

Spoiler Alert
18/01/2016

This is a classic British Crime Drama which thankfully doesn't take it self too seriously.

By this I mean it lacks the kind of intensity that makes some films difficult to watch.

All of the lead actors take things in their stride,whilst Diana Dors is at her smouldering best.

Terence Morgan's performance is wonderfully over the top,and George Baker's easy going cool and confident manner

is never less than pleasing to watch.

The script is almost formula,hitting every dramatically contrived marker and the trick ending can be seen coming a mile off.

But let none of this put you off.It's 91 mins well spent,and the B/W photography is very atmospheric.
