The bad things about this movie are mainly due to its age. It is black and white. The sound and picture quality are not up to most movie goers expectations. The acting is very slow. There are long pauses between the spoken sentences. It is like the actor or actress is waiting for a truck to drive by.
The good thing is the end of the movie. It actually goes somewhere. It could be redone today with a crisp delivery and the right cast. There are a few surprises that make the movie worth watching.
Leo Carrillo is actually good, but for some reason the acting is slowed down in almost every scene. There also is a great concern about a man and woman having an affair, which seems laughable today.
Is the first line "Good evening, Elvis?" I think that is what she says. Watch it and give me your opinion. This film was made two years before Elvis was born.
