Critic Reviews for Gideon's Day (Gideon of Scotland Yard)

All Critics (3)

Hollywood's John Ford, who has sadly declined in skill since his great days as a director, has scant reason to feel proud of this heavy-handed crime comedy-drama, starring the capable Jack Hawkins.

October 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Corny but pleasantly dull detective story, that plays like a television program.

February 12, 2014 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Unusual John Ford police procedural has stalwart British cop taking on police corruption, violent crime and a serial killer, all shot in glowing almost hallucinatory color.
