Home to Danger (1951)
This started off alright, daughter comes home to England because her father had died with the suggestion that he had committed suicide, and on the reading of his will it had been changed so that she got his share of a business that the late father's business partner was hoping/expecting to receive - he treats this all light heartedly, but you can see "things" are stirring and afoot.
We then see the business partner being blackmailed, the daughter being the target of an assassin played by of all people a twitchy Peter Jones (!), and you know who the villain of the piece is because he is played by the villainous Alan Wheatley, who was the evil Sheriff of Nottingham in the TV series of The Adventures of Robin Hood.
So, everything is in place for a good thriller, but then the plot dissolves in a farce full of holes.
The only other person I knew in it was Stanley Baker playing a thicko jack of all trades on the family estate.
Short fortunately so just about worth a watch, and the other thing that puzzled me was it had two advertising breaks with "End of Part One" etc., yet it is not listed as a film made for TV.
Some excellent cars in this!! A RH drive big American lump I couldn't identify, but again the IMDCB came up trumps (they have no info this time!!) identifying it only as a pre-war McLaughlin-Buick Special, and there was another huge model in the form of a Humber Super Snipe Pullman MkII. Also a very nice Sunbeam-Talbot 90 Drophead and another pre-war car in the shape of a Standard Flying Fourteen - you can always tell a Standard as they have a little flag on the bonnet, just above the rad. grille.
