Sexton Blake, a British pulp-novel rip-off of Sherlock Holmes, was the principal character in several fast-paced programmers of the 1930s. George Curzon stars as Blake in Sexton Blake and the Hooded Terror, but the histrionic honors go to chop-licking Tod Slaughter as "The Snake," the elusive head of a group of masked criminals. The scriptwriters contrive to allow the perfidious Slaughter to escape scot-free at the climax, paving the way for a sequel (that, worse luck, was never filmed). Greta Gynt plays another of the distressed-damsel roles she was saddled with before graduating to bigger-budgeted productions in the 1940s. Sexton Blake and the Hooded Terror represented the last of George Curzon's three appearances as Blake; the character would resurface on screen in 1944 in the person of David Farrar. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
