    MOVIE REVIEW

    A shop docks near London Bridge; the film shows how the crew takes to a weekend ashore, with action that includes a smuggling attempt, a rapid romance between a black seaman and a white theatre cashier, and a glimpse of the operations of the river police. Filmed in Dearden's Blue Lamp style.

    I would love to make this page different to the countless Dvd pages on Pool of London that are out there in the cut and paste world that is the web. You know, brief outline, thumbnail of cover and, if you're lucky, the back cover. Very little content is original and you'll find that on alot of releases. Any reviews leave out the fact that each movie has a heart and soul and touches people in different ways down the years. So if you would like to add anything on the film, whether good or bad, or trivia on the film - indeed anything like how it made you feel when you first saw it - then e-mail me here (ihuppert5@aol.com) and I'll add it within 24 hours, crediting you with just your first name.

    I'll start it off: this is such an important film in terms of historical value, tackling race issues long, long before anyone else was doing it in a worthy way, at least from what I can see. I discovered Susan Shaw through this film as I've never really heard of her before and she is just totally watchable as the cashier gently falling for the Earl Cameron character. A kind of South London romance that might have been - I think some of the scenes were shot in Camberwell.

    There's one shot of Renee Asherson as she waits that is simply breathtaking.
