CGiii Comment

A piece of cinematic history by Asquith - a priviledged, closeted alcoholic.

Technically, it's rather impressive - many a film student could learn a great deal from this.

But...in truth, it's hackneyed melodrama.


The(ir) Blurb...

Flashback story of an escape from the lonely, high-security Dartmoor Prison. A jealous barber's assistant is enraged by the attentions that his manicurist girlfriend pays to a customer. He threatens the customer with an open razor and lands in jail.
