Among the worst endings I can remember having seen...
30 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Up until the last 10 minutes or so, I actually enjoyed "Port of Lost Dreams". It wasn't a great film and was generally VERY predictable but it entertained. Unfortunately, the finale of the movie is among the dumbest ever put on film stock, so by the time it ended, I was more than ready to turn it off and watch something better (and that sure wouldn't have been hard).

The film begins with a hood in a prison hospital. Louie (Harold Huber) has been shot after a huge crime spree and the cops want him to divulge information about his moll (in 1930s talk, that's the gangster's woman). Louie, however, keeps his mouth shut and is remains in prison for much of the film.

As for Molly (Lola Lane), she is in hiding and keeping a very low profile. However, when she chooses to hide out on a dry docked boat, this ends up leading to a real adventure. You see, two Popeye-like sailors end up in a big brawl and rush back to the boat to avoid the law. They launch the boat and sail away--not realizing Molly is aboard. What happens next, for the most part, is by-the-numbers--and very predictable. At first, Molly and Lars (Bill Boyd) hate each other--which in most older films indicates that soon they'll fall in love and get married. The only surprise at this point is that they got married and had a child pretty quickly and there would be more to the story. The more? Louie breaks out and ultimately kills someone. However, it looks like Lars did it and to prove his innocence, she tells everyone (including Lars) who she really is. Again, this is not bad. But what Lars then does....yech!! If you care to see the film (and I DON'T recommend it), you'll see what I mean. Bad in a way that makes you cringe or your eyes roll--it's THAT bad! And, because of this, it's a film I would only recommend to people I hate!

By the way, if you didn't know, Bill Boyd soon became the B-movie cowboy star Hoppalong Cassidy. Before then, then had a pretty extensive career as a leading man dating back to the 1920s.
