Exciting little gem
29 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

I am very happy to have, at last, caught this rare noir from the USA. I must admit that I never miss a Nick Grinde's movie, as I do with the likes of Robert Florey, Phil Rosen and other William Nigh. Grade B products from the thirties and forties. Fast, short and vivid stories that never make you bored. This one is not an exception. Long Horn, as usual, gave us the topic and this thrilling chase all over the country to escape from the police justifies not to miss this little gem.

Of course, there is no much surprise in it, but it gives us what we may expect.

There are more Nick Grinde's films to purchase. Much searching work for me.
