Good stuff
13 April 2006 | by (Sunbury, PA) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie last night on Turner Classic Movies, and I have to say it was a lot better than I expected. Yes, it was definitely a B-movie but it still stands up today, over sixty years later. Beery and Main, as well as the script have enough development, so that the two come off as more than just cookie cutter characters. In addition to the leads, Naish did a fine performance as a 'sidekick/comedy' character and young Tommy played by Hickman put in a good performance as well.

I consider this a 'fun' movie and I'd watch it again if I caught it on, or even consider purchasing it on DVD if it were available. (An online search shows a few scattered notes of it being a rare find.) At approximately 80 minutes in duration, the timing is near perfect for the storyline.

Finally, I do believe there is a bit more to this movie than what meets the eye. With the topics they cover, I was left wondering how different it could have/be done if they delved deeper and darker into some of the elements.

7/10. If you have the means to catch this lost gem, it's worth it.
