The Shop at Sly Corner

The 1947 Brit noir THE SHOP AT SLY CORNER (US:  CODE OF SCOTLAND YARD) stars Oskar Homolka, Derek Farr, Muriel Pavlow, Kenneth Griffith and Manning Whiley.

Oscar Homolka plays a seemingly benign antique dealer who maintains a comfortable lifestyle by fencing stolen goods. Homolka's daughter (Muriel Pavlow), an aspiring musician, is the only person he genuinely cares about. Thus when the girl's future is threatened by a slimy blackmailer (Kenneth Griffith) who is unsatisfied with a mere cash settlement, Homolka is left to struggle with a suitable solution to his problem.

Homolka does a fine job as does Griffith, who is thoroughly detestable.

Keaney gave it a 3.5 and it's 6.9 on IMDb.  My wife and I thought it was OK, but nothing special.
