Another wooden performance from Elmer
22 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the better Range Busters movies. Unlike some entries in which action plays second fiddle to the comic banter, this successfully merges the two and would surely have pleased the Saturday matinée crowd at the Odeon, Isleworth.

Crash poses as a dude writer and is very funny - I have seen various comments to the effect that Corrigan's acting ability was limited but, to my mind, his performances do have a degree of subtlety, something rare in the genre - Dusty sings Old Macdonald while the old timers at a birthday party play Musical Chairs and, although Elmer has no more than a couple of lines of dialogue, watch his hair stand on end when pretty Jan Wilie gives him a smacker on his wooden cheek!

Good stuff!
