Storyline

A hotshot race-car driver gets suspended, and winds up driving for a shady bus company. This causes problems with his girlfriend, who owns a rival--but much more reputable--bus company. To get back on his girlfriend's good side, he looks a little deeper into the company he's working for and discovers that it's a front for a criminal gang. Written by frankfob <frankfob2@yahoo.com>

Another fast-moving Warners 'B'
10 October 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Top action specialist B. Reeves Eason directed this short but fast-paced Warners quickie about a hotshot dirt-track driver who gets suspended for dirty tricks on the track and gets mixed up with the pretty owner of a bus line who's being driven out of business by the unscrupulous owner of a rival bus line. Star Dick Purcell is one in a long line of motor-mouthed, wisecracking, fast-talking Warners leads--think Pat O'Brien and James Cagney, among others--who, although he never broke out of the "B" category, could be counted on to make films like this interesting (the same can't be said about his sidekick, Charles Foy, who gets more annoying and irritating every time he opens his mouth). The racetrack footage is really exciting, and Gloria Blondell, in her film debut as a cashier who falls for Foy, is sexy and adorable and seems to be having a whale of a good time. This is a fun picture, as long as you take it for what it is, and worth checking out.
