Violent Moment


Violent Moment is a 1959 British drama film directed by Sidney Hayers and starring Lyndon Brook, Jane Hylton and Jill Browne.[1] It was made as a B film for release on the lower-half of a double bill. It was the film editor Hayers' first film as director. It also marked the debut of Moira Redmond.[2] It was released in the United States as Rebound.

The film was released with its own credits, in the cinema. Later, it was released in the Edgar Wallace Mysteries, with that shows credits, of Wallace's statue, surrounded by whirling cigarette smoke.

The film is based on a story by Roy Vickers, from his 'Department of Dead Ends' series, originally published from 1934. These stories were ‘inverted’ mysteries: the reader knows the identity of the criminal, but the interest lies in how the detective solves the case and featured detectives dusting off cold cases. As with many of the criminals in Vickers’ stories, the protagonist Doug, is sympathetically depicted.[3][4]

A deserter from the British Army kills his girlfriend during a fight. Although he becomes a successful businessman, his past eventually catches up with him.[5]

Noirish wrote, "although the cheapness of the production is very evident and the aspirations are modest, this is by no means a negligible movie."[6]
