British director Oswald Mitchell never turned out a classic, but he kept working as long as there was a demand for "regional" programmers. Mitchell's The Black Memory revolves around cockney Danny Cruff (Michael Atkinson), the son of a man wrongly accused of murder. Danny decides to solve the mystery himself by hobnobbing with London's underworld. To do this, he poses as a juvenile delinquent. Black Memory was written by John Gilling, who like Oswald Mitchell devoted his career to grinding out profitable potboilers.
