Richard Dix & Una Merkel Gave Great Performances !
11 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like Classic Films with great actors, try to catch this film on TV. Richard Dix(John Day),"The Secret of the Whistler,'46 was a man wrongfully accused and sent to prison, his wife (Madge Evans), "Army Girl",'38 was fooling around and was killed and his children were left in the care of Una Merkel (Mamie),"SpinOut",'66,who talks with a very high pitched voice and very dippy. Una Merkel was a film actress from the early 20's, 30's and 40's and could play any role she was offered to perfection. There are actual outdoor scenes of John Day fighting above the streets of Los Angeles on roof tops and lots of model T Fords running all around throughout the city. If you look close, you will see a great film actor when he was young, Raymond Hatten (Hart) who appeared in 349 films, one "Shake, Rattle & Rock" '56. Samuel S. Hines,(O'Farrell),"Bed of Roses", who also appeared in many great Classic films, appeared in 210 films. If you love Richard Dix as the "Whistler" on Radio and TV, this is your kind of movie.
