What a terrific idea
7 March 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Here is the topic. A league of "perfect" gentlemen, wealthy I mean, a retired judge and his relatives, including his limousine chauffeur, decide to take in "charge" all folks exonerated after trials in which they were accused of murder charges. So they abduct them, after inviting them to the judge's large estate for a luncheon, and then put them as prisoners in an attic, each of them put in a wired net cell. From that, the family of one of the abducted decide to do something about it, whilst the prisoners do their best to escape from the judge's estate. Inreresting idea indeed, and with a rather light touch. But the director, David Swift, made more comedies than dramas in his career. The judge is played here by Paul Douglas. A character that suits him like a glove.
