Preposterous Story From Paramount
2 June 2012 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Always liked Richard Dix, but in this picture he is lost in a muddled storyline which defies credulity. Briefly, he is a boxer with a devastating 'shock punch' (a knockout punch) who meets a girl while on a work-out run in Central Park. He is smitten. Her father owns a skyscraper under construction which has a deadline, or he will lose it. Inexplicably, Dix joins the construction crew to help build it, and things happen - none of which are funny or logical.

There are some tense moments high above street level on girders, reminiscent of Harold Lloyd antics, but what is the point? He is supposed to be a contending boxer and it seems all that is forgotten. His adversary is silent heavy Walter Long, the construction foreman, who tries to sabotage the building and our hero.

This was not an interesting movie except for the gymnastics on the building's frame. It is a hodgepodge of a movie which must have had moviegoers at the time confused and exasperated as I was regarding motive and continuity. Some old movies are best forgotten.
