Gripping second feature which reflects life in the mines, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
18 February 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Recent events have dominated the press where the world watched as men working underground faced their possible death in a world of darkness. There have not only been real life incidents of mine collapses, but incidents where innocent children fell into a well and the world also watched with baited breath to see if they could be rescued. This mid 1930's drama focuses on a real life incident in Canada, and the results are just as gripping, even if some of the plot points are filled with sentimental pathos which threaten to weaken its structure.

The wonderful Henry O'Neill plays the owner of the mine who comes into financial strife when his young daughter is suddenly injured and needs major surgery. He agrees to sell the mine to the profit obsessed Robert Barrat. While inspecting the mines in order to make a decision and finalize their deal, O'Neill and Barrat are trapped, and the whole town waits for news of their fate. Before long, the press has arrived and the impending tragedy has become a major media event. Great detail goes into showing how the men (lead by mine foreman Barton MacLane) get through to attempt to rescue the two survivors of the collapse.

While MacLane and Jean Muir are top-billed (with Muir playing O'Neill's older daughter and MacLane's fiancé), it is the relationship between the two trapped men which stands out here and the details which take the viewer into the depths of these men's possible fate. The viewer will certainly feel the claustrophobia of the men, also felt in the beginning as a previous mine accident takes the life of one of the workers, causing O'Neill to become aware that more needs to be done to ensure the safety of the workers.
