The Limping Man

Though this watchable and moody English thriller—about an American (Lloyd Bridges) visiting a former lover (Moira Lister) in London and becoming involved in a murder case—is signed by one “Charles De Lautour,” it's actually the first English feature of the black-listed American director Cy Endfield, who had to work anonymously or pseudonymously even in England during this period. (De Lautour was in fact a real director whom Endfield paid to “front” for him.) Despite an unsatisfying denouement that suggests hasty script work (the credited writers are Ian Stuart and Reginald Long), this manages to pack a lot into its tidy 74 minutes; with Helene Cordet, Bruce Beeby, Alan Wheatley, and Leslie Phillips (1953).
