Nat Pendleton Not Playing Nat Pendleton!
21 February 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Margaret Lindsay was a rather unattractive actress who worked a lot. She therefore was in a lot of interesting movies, just by the law of averages.

This one stars Dean Jagger -- Who knew he was ever young? -- as a ne'er-do-well who ends up with earthy fishermen. Lindsay is the daughter. See, he was going to kill himself but they saved him; and -- well, the plot doesn't hold up under much scrutiny.

Pendleton plays the son of the family. He's an honorable fisherman, not a gangster. He wears clothes that are neither zoot suits not EMS uniforms (as in the Kildare series.) His character is saddled with the somewhat grand name Benvenuto. After Cellini? Who can tell. But he is addressed by that name in virtually every line of dialogue involving him.

A harmless curiosity..
