I bought this DVD because I was somewhat familiar with Dornford Yates books. I hadn't read any for many years so was pleased to see She Fell Among Thieves was on DVD. I was very disappointed. If you are a fan of movies the way they were in say the 1920's, very much the saving the damsel in distress type of thing after tying her up to a railway track with a train bearing down on the victim, you might like this DVD. I didn't like it at all. It was more like a cartoon story than the real thing, very unbelievable and quite frankly a waste of time. You cannot take this story seriously, it's more of a joke type of thing. Like I say, very much like an old time type of movie. If this movie launched PBS Mystery series and I had seen it then, I would never have watched Mystery again. I also think it is far too expensive. I wouldn't have paid so much for it had I known it was so lousy. All this is just my opinion, others might think differently. I do agree with the other comment that in parts it was actually laughable, while, I am sure, wasn't intended to be. Unfortunately I didn't read the other comments before purchasing.
