Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecast was Friday 19 November 1948 on WATV, New York City. See more »

About as enjoyable as a car crash
13 February 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Uneven drama about a racecar driver who's life spins out of control when his second in his racecar (when they had them in those dem days) dies, after a crash. You see, his partner's son was all hyped about going to military school, and after his partner dies, he adopts the kid ("Wanna stay with me?") and gives the kid his wish. But, because of the accident, he's slightly spooked about getting into a car again, and soon, because he needs to scrape by enough money for the kid's education, is forced to driving cars for a living.

This is sort of confusing to follow (mainly because the print I saw is severely banged up), filled with annoying characters (That Italian couple got on me nerves!) and a sappy cloying child actor. Ugh.
