Did You Know?


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. See more »

For "Buster" Fans Only
21 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For this Cheapie from Poverty Row Mayfair Pictures, Buster Crabbe was acquired on Loan-Out from Paramount where he was under contract.............The film itself is a lesson of how 68 minutes can be wasted on a very boring story-line, with some of the worst acting ever seen in a Poverty Row B-Film......The only saving grace of this Turkey was the presence of Crabbe...........Why Paramount did not utilize Crabbe's exceptional enthusiasm, and a fairly good screen appearance is questioned.......Crabbe himself said once in an Interview, that Henry Hathaway and he, did not get along after a confrontation on the set of Hathaway's last Paramount Zane Grey film "To The Last Man"-1933.......Whatever the reason, many of Crabbe's fans, including yours truly, had wished he had made more & better films then this one......Watch it if you must; but only if you are a fan of Buster Crabbe......Sasheegm-1
