REVIEW BY EUGENE ARCHER



At one point in No Place Like Homicide, a giggling maniac threatens to feed the rest of the cast to a pack of starving mongrels. "Oh, blimey," smirks one of the victims, "we're going to the dogs."

The rest of the humor in this ostensible British farce is on a similar level. The fact that a film of this degree of vulgarity and ineptitude should have managed a week's booking at neighborhood theatres throughout Manhattan demonstrates just how acute the motion picture product shortage really is.



Review is from the September 13, 1962 edition of THE NEW YORK TIMES.
