Toward the end Jagger's Capper character got attacked by 'Bill' the dog and Nick. During the short scuffle, Jagger's hat got jarred a bit and knocked off. The first jarring showed something under the fedora. He fell back and hit the dirt, then the hat came off revealing a full head wig flopped forward hair side downward showing the bald pate. should have been cut. very obvious.

This little show barely qualifies as even a "B" picture, but I found it quite enjoyable, and parts of it certainly rose above the mundane. It was fun to see William Hall in a rare leading role, as well as pretty Anne Nagel who looked like one of the Young sisters. Charles Waldron (Gen. Sternwood in The Big Sleep) has a role as a blind man who "sees" more than many of the sighted characters, and his cultured voice is always a pleasure to hear. Added to that you have good if predictable character roles for Ward Bond, Murray Alper and the seldom-seen Stefi Duna, with a fine turn by Dean Jagger (pre-bald days) as a really mean gangster. Since it's only a hair longer than one hour, give it a try...if you're not expecting a classic, you might very well enjoy yourself.
