Fun 40's Action adventure
1 April 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An enjoyable second feature from the b-unit at Universal Studios. Richard Arlen and Andy Devine play a pair of down on their luck oil workers. They are down to their last dime when they are hired to check out an oil drilling operation in the East Indies. It seems there is something wrong with the figures home office in New York is getting from the Pacific. Arlen and Devine fly into the island to see what the problem could be. The first thing you know the boys are arrested by the local police. Then they are sold as slave workers to the oil rig they had come to check up on. The rig manager and the police chief then split the wage supposedly paid to the workers. Needless to say Arlen and Devine lead a revolt of the workers. There are several well handled gun-battles and the like in this lightweight action film. John Eldredge, and Franic McDonald supply the villain content while Jean Brooks is the damsel in distress. Fun little 65 min time-waster
