Somewhat strained and a bit too familiar, but a must-see nevertheless!
25 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Second last of sixteen movies for photographer Something Something MacSomething, who could never make his mind how to spell his own name. Although he made only 14 movies, he changed the spelling of his name in the credits NINE times. On this one, he is credited as E.L. McManigle on the Alpha DVD. IMDb, however, is of the opinion that on this occasion, he preferred to bill himself as E.L. MacManigal. Nevertheless, IMDb seems to lean to the opinion that his real name was E.M. MacManigal, even though he actually used E.T. MacManigal no less than four times in his sixteen movies career. Well, it's competent photography anyway, you can certainly say that. And here's Bob Steele in another adventure written and directed by his dad, Robert N. Bradbury. This script is somewhat below Robert N.'s usual high standard of thrills and suspense, as we, the audience, would have to be pretty stupid not to tumble to the plot right from the very opening shot. And no doubt because the plot is so familiar, it seems more than a trifle strained. Nevertheless, it has its moments and Bradbury does try to jazz it up with a bit of romantic interest featuring the lovely Beth Marion who later captured the eye of stuntman, Cliff Lyons, and virtually retired from acting in 1938. Many fans would also agree that any movie presenting Charles King as king of the baddies, is a worth-watching movie. Available on a very good Alpha DVD.
