Thanksgiving Turkey: Gideon of Scotland Yard (1958)
Feeling very much like a John Ford film, it's a not particularly memorable film that feels more a construction than anything else, with all of the events set up so that something would happen for Gideon to do-and as for the finale- how could you not see that coming.
I can't really recommend it. It's not bad but I felt like I had kind of wasted the time it took to see it, partly because the film insists on tying everything up.
John Ford should have done better- if nothing else he should have been more interesting instead of just workmanlike and bland.
For John Ford completists or those who stumble upon it only.
