Pain . . . Torment . . . and Death

If you have watched and enjoyed many British crime mysteries you know that the British style is usually to create a slow and peaceful setup, with everything looking proper and serene before the action begins, but this crime mystery starts off like a Chicago gangster fest, with the action clipping along right from the get-go. A gorgeous lady visits the Rex Hotel in London with a small suitcase and sets it on the counter while telling the desk clerk that she has an appointment with a gentleman, but the gentleman is not registered and the desk clerk doesn't recognize his name. Meanwhile insurance investigator Steve Curry, played by Dermot Walsh, is checking out . . . and the lady's small suitcase is accidentally mixed in with the investigator's luggage. The investigator discovers the case that is not his at the airport and gives it to his buddy that is seeing him off, asking him to return it to the lady at the hotel. Now the action really gets going as the lady at the hotel, played by Rona Anderson, is taken away by a stranger in a car, and the insurance investigator, while waiting for his plane to America is lured outside the terminal and kidnapped and beaten, escaping after valiantly fighting off two gangsters. Having missed his plane, the investigator returns to London and finds his buddy Tim, played by Sam Kydd, who could not find the lady at the hotel because she had been kidnapped. When the investigator hooks up with his buddy they discover that the case is stuffed with money, and the mystery intensifies as the gangsters try to get the money and the investigator tries to piece together the secret of the smuggled skins, which may lead to the torture and death of much of London. I will tell you, because I don't believe that it will ruin the excitement for you . . . Watch carefully as the investigator and his buddy are chatting with the bar hostess at the Rex before leaving for the airport . . . The vital clue that will pull all the pieces together for the investigator is revealed here, as the camera zooms in on the match book on the bar counter. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
