    Charles Bennet was an A-list writer most notable for his early Hitchcock classics. It's necessary to mention this, because in addition to writing No Escape, he also was director. There are Hitchcokian elements here: the blonde heroine, almost convoluted plot twists and even a climax on rooftops. What's missing first of all is a decent budget. This probably rated as a C grade production back then and it shows. Lackluster cinematograpy, set and costume design doesn't help. I love Lew Ayres both as an actor and humanitarian. He's not so much wasted here as not living up to his full potential. The other casts are ok, but not particularly charasmatic. The main plot twist isn't that surprising. Hitchcock fans might give this a go because of Bennet's pedigree and observing how Hitchcock might've handled things differently like tighter pacing, cleverer banter and that lush, impeccable eye for detail. Hats off to Bennet for directing. If only he had a better budget, cast with the exception of Ayres, and a little more of the macabre genius of you-know-who.
