  • Review of jaunty Paul Temple thriller 'Bombay Waterfront' (1952) – Maclean Rogers.

    Luminously pretty Patricia Dainton and handsome co-star John Bentley are the resolute crime-busting Temples, dangerously entwined in this ripping 50s murder mystery about a sordid series of especially grisly murders. This delightful trip into warmly crumpeted cinematic nostalgia includes an early, and no less magisterial performance from future Hammer Films icon Christopher Lee as the deliciously ambivalent, charmingly charismatic Mr. Felix. 'Bombay Waterfront' cannot be regarded as the most sophisticated Paul Temple thriller, but whip-smart, sharp-shooting sleuth makes for an engaging hero hot on the dastardly trail of the wholly despicable criminal mastermind 'The Marquis, who frustratingly proves to be a most worthy and Machiavellian adversary for our dogged Mr. Temple! 'Bombay Waterfront' aka 'Paul Temple Returns' retains much of its period charm, being a serviceable, rather than sensational 50s B/W potboiler, but the entirely splendid cast effortlessly smooths the jaunty thriller's rougher edges!
