June Bolton...the Lindsay Lohan of the 1930s!
29 December 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this B-movie begins, Dick Clayton (Rod La Rocque) has been hired to keep an eye on June Bolton (Maxine Doyle), a spoiled brat rich girl. She goes from one adventure after another and is the most irresponsible and obnoxious character I've seen in films in a long time. Despite Clayton's best efforts, she ends up in jail...a place that, for once, might teach her that the world does NOT revolve around her! Soon, June is bailed out of jail and sets off with a new friend, Hazel...who happens to be the girlfriend of a mob boss!! Oddly, at this point, Clayton figures out he's in love with June....and I have no idea why!

There is a HUGE problem with this film. Instead of making June kooky or irresponsible but likable, it might have worked. Instead, she's just a b#$%^ and is completely detestable...so much so that it makes no sense at all that Clayton would find himself in love with her! Had they had Clayton kill her...now that would have made sense!! Because of this serious problem, the film is a clear misfire--and I cannot see many people enjoying it, as it does not end with June being tossed under a bus or out the window of some skyscraper!!!

Overall, a cheap and seriously flawed movie, only worth seeing for Rod La Rocque fans...both of them.
