Ladylike Diana Napier is unexpectedly coarse as the female gang boss in Bait. Napier only behaves herself around her lover John Bentley-at least until he spurns her. In retaliation, she frames Bentley for her brother's murder. A knuckle-tough British programmer, Bait is well acted by all concerned. Frank Richardson directed this cinema adaptation of his own stage play.
