Great Cast......Fast Performance!
13 June 2000 | by (Templeton,CA) – See all my reviews

This film is just an hour long,but full of suspense!Jim Dolen (Dennis Morgan) is a guy who can't seem to stop getting in trouble and Ann Stacey (Gloria Dickson) refuses to get married to him until he changes his attitude.Ward Bond is great in this one.Dennis is very young and this is one of his first films at Warner Brothers as "Dennis Morgan" and not "Stanley Morner"!I hope you'll enjoy it if you see it!
