When Dan sets the ladder beneath Helen's window, it falls a couple of feet short; standing on the top rung would bring Dan chest-high to the window sill. Filmed from inside the room, Dan is able to climb all the way into the window. See more »

Poor movie, DISMAL DVD
7 February 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Dynamite Dan is a poorly-acted, unfunny comedy. The only attraction is a very young Boris Karloff, but his role is small. The plot is unbelievably stupid and trite. There is a wimpy amateur detective known as Sherlock Jones (groan!) who spends the entire movie being kicked, beaten, thrown around, locked in a gym locker, and having his hat pulled down over his eyes. There is an ugly woman who elicits the same horrified, exaggerated reaction from every man who sees her and this gag is used about a dozen times! There is a bit about a ladder being moved to a different window which is also used multiple times. The movie is only 57 minutes in length, but I couldn't wait for it to get over!

I watched an Alpha Video DVD of this movie. Alpha Video isn't known for high quality DVDs, but this one is really atrocious. The quality of the picture is so poor as to be barely discernible during some scenes. I only paid $5 for the DVD, but it was still a complete waste of money! Avoid this DVD at any cost!
