Off to a cracking start...
16 October 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

HOT MONEY was the first time I encountered Boris Karloff's Colonel March in the form of COLONEL MARCH INVESTIGATES, an anthology movie stitched together from three pilot episodes of the show Colonel March of Scotland Yard (the others were DEATH IN THE DRESSING ROOM and THE NEW INVISIBLE MAN). You can tell something is a little off as March and Ames aren't as friendly as they would be later on in the show and almost feel like strangers in places.

However, the story is a good one making this a strong start for the series. After a violent bank robbery, the trail leads back to a mild-mannered lawyer who claims innocence. March's main investigation lies in discovering the missing loot because with it he'll find the guilty party. This is snappy, pacy stuff, enlivened by supporting cast appearances from Ronald Leigh-Hunt, Joan Sims, and an uncredited Marianne Stone.
