This is definitely one for Frankie Darro's legion of fans, as young Darro is on-screen almost continuously. The only player who challenges Frankie for screen time is Lillian Elliott. For those of you who wonder why Lillian's career is studded with uncredited bits, this movie provides an explanation. Hers is a formidable but somewhat overpowering presence. On the other hand, the movie's nominal heroine, the lovely Evalyn Knapp, hardly figures in the action at all. And as far as third- billed Robert Kent is concerned, he may as well not have been cast in this quickie. It's Frankie, Lillian and Matty Fain who do all the running. Admittedly, when young Frankie and stocky Lillian are not hogging the screen, there is some good, fast chase action footage along the way though I suspect some of it is stock. Directed in a thoroughly routine style by Howard Bretherton, this Wanted will mostly be unwanted by everyone except diminutive Darro's keenest fans. Available on a very good Alpha DVD.
