The Shakedown

The Shakedown

Terence Morgan stars in this 1959 British production. Directed and co-written by John Lemont which was distributed by Rank. Morgan plays “Augie” a crook just released from prison and intent on getting his rackets back from “Gollar” (Harry H Corbett). Augie sets up, down and out photographer (Donald Pleasence) in a studio with blackmail in mind. Well shot, this gritty crime flick is a must for crime buffs with a good supporting cast, Bill Owen, Robert Beatty and Hazel Court, whose first role in 1944 was a tipsy champagne drinker and her last role, in 1981 was a champagne drinker!
