A must see old movie
15 February 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this as a child, probably 9 or 10 years old, and can remember thinking how clever this man was to remember the route of the kidnap car. Well acted, Robert Young as the hero and kept you on the edge of the seat all through the movie. Have not seen it since and need to review the movie again.
