The Shakedown [1959] [DVD]

Terence Morgan (actor)
Hazel Court (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 91 min
Quality: Excellent

Although not strictly a remake, this British movie bears a remarkable similarity to Joseph Pevney's 1950 Hollywood B picture of the same name, with Terence Morgan in the Howard Duff role as a photographer with an eye for extortion. The film sets out to shock with sleazy settings and sensationalist suggestions of nudity, but few of the misdemeanours from this period piece would raise even a blush today.

Director John Lemont is so pleased with his naughtiness that he forgets to concentrate on the storyline, which grinds to its inevitable conclusion. On the plus side, the cast boasts such familiar faces as Donald Pleasence, Bill Owen and Harry H Corbett.
