The Floating Dutchman

1953


Brisk little crime film about a jewel fencing ring, forerunner of the Scotland Yard films that would come in the next few years from the same studio (Merton Park).

Wikipedia and IMDb list this film with a 1952 date; however, the film itself has a 1953 copyright, and papers onscreen have a 1953 date, which indicates that is correct. BBFC only lists the 1958 reissue.
