Clichéd and Corny…But Worth a Watch
9 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Quickly Paced Programmer (B-Movie) that is Enjoyable Despite some Silly Conventions like the Irish Priest as Saviour and Cornball Romanticism.

A Quick Tempered and Nasty Longshoreman (Dennis Morgan) Smacks People Around, Including Women, with Abandonment and is in and Out of Jail His Whole Life. But He is Handsome and is Worth Saving (by Gloria Dixon) because He is Better than the Villain (Ward Bond) who Smacks People Around, Including Women, with Abandonment but isn't Handsome.

But Both have a Woman Willing to Sacrifice All to Save Their Man from Ultimate Doom and One Guess as to who will Come Out on Top. Worth a Watch if You can Handle the Clichés because it is Only an Hour Long and has a Certain Blue-Collar Charm.
