 Trash City review: The Black Panther   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Though I was only eight at the time, I remember the 1975 case on which this film is based: Donald Nielson, a somewhat inept Post Office burglar, tried his hand at kidnapping, with teenage heiress Lesley Whittle the victim, but to no more success.
Whittle ended up dead, and Nielson is still in jail, I believe.
The sleeve claims "this film is all the more tense...because it actually happened", but the reverse is actually the case - like all true crime stories, it's limited by the fact, and there's no suspense possible, since you know how it's going to end.

He clearly found it impossible to readjust to civilian life after a spell of national service in the army and some of the film’s most quietly chilling moments come when Merrick focuses on Neilson’s attempts to impose military rigour and order on a chaotic world.
The Black Panther is commendably faithful to the real life events, which culminated in the abduction and murder of 16 year old heiress Lesley Whittle - a security guard, Gerald Smith, who was shot by Neilson before the Whittle kidnapping subsequently died from the injuries he received.
With the distance of time, the names Donald Neilson, Lesley Whittle and The Black Panther have come to mean next to nothing for the general public in Britain and probably never meant all that much abroad so, sadly, the chances of a revival for this excellent film seem very slim indeed.
