My Death Is a Mockery
Hop aboard for a choppy Channel crossing with this bleak, bullet-spattered sea-smuggling crime drama.
Crime 1952 69 mins Not rated
Director: Tony Young
Hop aboard for a choppy Channel crossing with this bleak, bullet-spattered sea-smuggling crime drama, salvaged from the turbulent waves of time. A down-on-his-luck fisherman (British screen stalwart Donald Houston) is tempted into a dangerous but more lucrative line in black-market booze at the urging of his wayward wife (Byron) after a brief bar-room liaison with a small-time spiv (Tony Hancock’s old radio co-star Bill Kerr, in a rare serious role).
Adelphi FIlms' spirited crime drama was caught up in controversy upon its release, after it was reportedly the film Christopher Craig saw shortly before killing policeman Sidney Miles (the Let Him Have It case). And aside from a single 1960 TV screening it has been largely unseen since - until now.
