"Take My Life is the novel of the film of that title which has recently been such an outstanding success. Below are some of the opinions of the film critics."
* * * *
"That rare article a credible thriller. At once unpretentious and brilliant." - The Manchester Guardian.
"Most intelligently written." - Alan Dent. The New Chronicle.
"Has the chill of real horror because we feel that it might easily have happened to you or me. Extra choice." - C.A. Lejeune. The Observer.
"The dialogue must have been a pleasure for the actors to speak." Catherine de la Roche on the B.B.C.
"Seldom has such a theme been more intelligently treated. The dialogue is unusually literate and worth listening to." - Punch.
"Kept me on the edge of my seat all the time. What suspense !" - Jympson Harman. The Evening News.
"What a good film this is ! How I enjoyed it !" Helen Fletcher. The Sunday Graphic.
"Ingeniously varies the usual crime mystery : its tension is new, and throughout the crucial events an admirable realism is preserved." William Whitebait. The New Statesman.
"Nicolas Talbot quarrelled with his wife and walked out of his flat - to be arrested for a murder it would never have entered his head to have committed. Yet the evidence against him was so strong that scarcely anyone except his wife believed in his innocence. This is a story which has a peculiar appeal because it states a situation which could conceivably happen to any one of us, and states it in such a way that we believe it might !"
"Perfection is a full stop .... Ever the climbing but never the attaining Of the mountain top." W.G.
