A Policemans lot is Not A Happy One
7 February 2010 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Glyn Houston has a very hard time in this.He plays a Detective who is taken off the murder case and put out on gardening leave.He is getting divorced,and this will hinder his police career,this is 1962.To make matters worse he is imprisoned in a farmhouse by a gang which includes as Thitd Villain,Michael Caine with an awful Irish accent.This all ends up with a shootout in the farm yard which resembles Gunfight At The OK Coral.To make matters worse he clearly lusts after the local barmaid but his sense of proprietary clearly douses his desires.All in all a very entertaining entry in this series.The strong casts are also the backbone of this series
