P.C. George Dixon (Warner) a long-serving traditional "copper" who is due to retire shortly, takes a new recruit, Andy Mitchell (Hanley), under his aegis, introducing him to the easy-going night beat. Dixon is a classic Ealing 'ordinary' hero, but also anachronistic, unprepared and unable to answer the violence of Tom Riley (Bogarde). Called to the scene of a robbery at a local cinema, Dixon finds himself face-to-face with Riley, a desperate youth armed with a revolver. Dixon initially tries to talk Riley into surrendering the weapon, but Riley panics and fires. Dixon walks to his own death almost uncomprehending. Dixon is taken to hospital, but dies some hours later. The ending is another Ealing quirk, with ordinary decent society, including 'professional' criminals used to violence, banding together to track down and catch the murderer, who is trapped in the crowd at White City greyhound track in west London. To Andy Mitchell falls the honour of arresting Riley.

Kate M (it) wrote: Very nice and simple comedy about two stupid childish girls turning into respinsible family business supporters. Fairy tale, but still, very nice.
Bheema D (nl) wrote: It takes a lot of talent from the actors, directors and writers to make a movie where the family is just as irritable and lovable as a real family.

Bill B (es) wrote: I wasn't as sold on this one as the other Hope stuff I've seen recently, but it has a few moments that made me laugh. Otherwise, a lot of it felt like I was literally watching someone make a Bob Hope travelogue.Definitely something worth a peep on cable, but may not be worth tracking down for a rental unless you're a bigger fan than I appear to be.
