A vintage delight! Excellent actors with a fine script by seasoned espionage writer, Eric Ambler. Ambler's plots (e.g. Topkapi, Mask of Dimitrious) are exemplars of the genre and always worth watching. An exception is his war film, The Immortal Battalion (also The Way Ahead), one of the most forthright war films ever written for WWII. This offering is fast paced, suspenseful, and a bit of a send up. Enjoyed it even after third viewing in as many weeks.

What a gem! Gripping from the opening shot - a close in shot of a test tube containing wriggling meal worms and EGAD! Frances Grey (Margaret Lockwood) scared the daylights out of me...I know there must be a woman beneath all of that makeup somewhere. Guilted into accepting a secret assignment to smuggle some insects of vital importance out of a highly dangerous, Communist-Russianesque country. Face lacquered, eye brows painted, false black eyelashes glued in place, Frances Grey aka Frances Conway, Entomologist, boards a train to her destination. Unfortunately, she's not only untrained to act as a secret agent, but her compartment mate is the Chef of Police in Grenze Granitsa - Anton Rasinsky (resembling the offspring of an evil Captain Kangaroo and Samuel Clemens). He's onto her from the get-go. Fortunately for her, Bill Casey (a terrific Dane Clark) hones in on her at her rendezvous point, the Café Mimosa. Casey takes Conway for a little drive, apparently too much of a gentleman to be embarrassed by her completely ghastly pair of cat's eye sunglasses. Her contact has been murdered, she's arrested by Rasinsky, yet somehow the Klieg lights don't melt her makeup. She's injected with the ubiquitous "truth serum", spouts nonsense, and is thrown into a filthy cell. Wilfred Hyde White plays the British Charge d'Affaires. Then, the real fun begins. There's tension, chemistry, romance, some humor and a twist. The story is well-paced, well-written, alternating between darkness and light. The scene near the end of the rousting of train passengers in Grenze Granitsa shows a cast of extras straight out of a Fellini movie - great faces!

Highly Dangerous (1950) is fun, though mild, entertainment for fans of B movies of the 30s through the 50s. Despite the improbable--well, the improbable everything, the actors are suited to the film because they're more down-to-earth than, as just one example, the glamorous Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman in Notorious. Not that Margaret Lockwood wasn't a beauty, but she's somehow believable as an entomologist. And Dane Clark (in an infrequent lead-male role) is very good as a journalist who, for a reason never explained, has been banished by his editor to cover a small Eastern Block country. A lot of good ideas and plot motivators are never really explained. But the characters, and the caricatures, are enjoyable. Wilfrid Hyde-White adds class, as usual, and his interaction in the last scenes with the main bad guy (Marius Goring in lots of make-up) practically makes the film.

Margaret Lockwood is a great actress and certainly elevates the story with her acting abilities. Now I would like to see all her films and have set about doing that to the ones that are on Amazon Prime Video anyway.

Mmmehhh - that's about all I can say. If you're in a mood it's watchable. The acting is decent I will say that-the cast are seasoned professionals after all. Good to see Mr. Karloff in a different role for a change.

Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination but it has a few suprises. It's a little quirky. Print quality from VCI is good but like a lot of VCI's product the sound is slightly distorted. Still worth buying.
