Trivia

Film editor Edward Dmytryk was very anxious to become a film director and approached director James Hogan and asked if he could remain on-set and observe Hogan and his technique. Dmytryk's only previous directing experience had come in an unsuccessful Poverty Row Western three years earlier. The veteran director graciously agreed. Afterward Dmytryk became a well-known and respected director in his own right with classics like "Murder, My Sweet," "Crossfire," "The Caine Mutiny," and "Raintree County" among his 56 films.

The lab equipment is the major spark in this entry
25 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

One of the weaker entries in the Drummond series, but it's still entertaining. Perhaps I've seen too many of the Drummond films too close together. The humor is not as sharp as earlier entries. The pacing is fine, but the plot and villains don't seem to be up to snuff. The villains don't appear evil or sharp enough to harm a fly, let alone our hero.

There is a nice sequence of that wonderful 30s "lab equipment" working its magic. So much more exciting and dramatic than computer chips and LEDs! Now that's evil!
