Stars: Eric Portman, Ann Todd, Maxwell Reed

A barber and part-time hangman marries a destitute girl, loses her to a Swedish seaman, and kills himself in such a way as to implicate the other man

Reviews (1)

Dockside melodrama of extraordinary pretentious gloominess; laughable in most respects. A curious follow-up from the Seventh Veil team. (Halliwell’s)
