Great action

Great action highlighted by some superb camera work and excellent skating more than make up for a fairly lame script.

The actors were good. Dick Purcell was well cast since he had played hockey in college.

Wayne Morris in this early role was thoroughly charming and boyish.

George E. Stone as the bad guy stood out because of his charm. He obviously couldn't have been really evil, not with that smile.

This could have been a great movie if the story had been allowed to develop, but apparently the bosses ordered it kept to an hour. Too bad.

With this very talented cast and crew, "King of Hockey" could have been a classic.
