Very entertaining
16 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Wonderful movie. I have become tired writing movie reviews, but I had to write this one when I saw that the film had only a 5.9 User Rating. How could that be?

I chose to watch the film because I am a Hopalong Cassidy fan, who is played by William Boyd, the star of this movie. I had never seen him out of the Cassidy role. My biggest delight was with the actors Lew Cody and Marion Shilling, who was adorable; I have to catch their movies. One of the best parts of the movie was the cinema-photography: the war-time explosions, smoke and noise were great for 1931, and would look likewise today. The film was relatively short time-wise, and it moved along quickly. The anti-war humanitarian theme was the major part of the film, especially the romance, impending marriage and war issues between Boyd (a non-German-American) and Lissy Arna (a German-American). See it, you won't be disappointed.
