Inventors doing their stuff for their country
Chris (Asgardian) from Adelaide, South Australia
13 August 2008
Interesting, if not entirely factual, early hi-jinks with the
production of the television.
The inventors in this case are going forward with the purpose of
producing a finished article suitable for use by the USA military, with
the intention to donate it to their government, an understandable theme
for the movie considering it was made in 1939.
Naturally an assortment of very interested characters are portrayed,
ranging from the bitter scientific rival, his slightly ditsy daughter,
all the way to the surprise Nazi agents and their costly thugs.
Anthony Quinn makes the most of his part as one of those thugs, whose
motto may well be that no task is too dirty if there is money involved,
the more money, the more he'll enjoy the task.
Watch it for a bit of casual entertainment, lasting just under an hour,
it's perfect for that time inside out of the weather, but don't expect
too much, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
