During World War II, an American serviceman in London decides to impress his English girlfriend by acting as an American gangster, which soon turns deadly.
Ambitious wartime semi-Noir drama that drowns its intentions by staging a true-crime story in entirely artificial settings.
Halliwell (no star): "Based on actual events, but a movie that rarely seems more than a laboured fantasy and one that the public ignored."
Maltin**1/2: "Famed British tabloid fodder gets the low-budget "period" treatment. Mildly interesting account never quite jells, though some of the violence offers surprisingly stylized jolts. Lloyd is a lot more intersting than her costar here."
