Where's Jack?  [DVD]Tommy Steele (actor)
Stanley Bake (actor)
Format: all region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 112 min
The damaging flaw in this 18th-century account of highway skulduggery is the miscasting of pop-singer Tommy Steele as ruffian Jack Sheppard, who is pursued - and, to an extent, manipulated by - the venal Stanley Baker (who also co-produced).
But director James Clavell, who would go on to write blockbuster novels such as Shogun and Tai-Pan, makes a brave attempt at re-creating the bawdy, squalid times.
