UNCLE JOE looks and feels like a Roach Streamliner, and there is music by Roach composer Marvin Hatley -- but the directors, writers and production company are complete novelties, with no other credits. Possibly these are pseudonyms and perhaps someone will do a little research.
But despite the uncertainties of what was going on behind the camera, what goes on in front of the camera is a delight.

The movie also features a very young Gale Storm, who plays the accordion. An exceeding pleasant way to spend an hour or so.
