Storyline

Henry Courtney, a wealthy importer is found murdered and the famous DeNormand necklace has been stolen. The false testimony of two witnesses, Rand and Hobbs, puts Jim O'Brien in the shadow of the hangman's noose. Martha Courtney, widow of the murdered man and Jim's former sweetheart is convinced he isn't guilty, and promises crooked lawyer Roger Lanning the necklace - which Jim doesn't have - if he can arrange for Jim's escape. Rand and Lanning killed Courtney, but Lanning doesn't know that Rand has the necklace. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Wild
6 January 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Oh boy, what a wild movie this is. Any movie that begins with a nonchalant battle in a fancy dining room and goes from there has to be seen to be believed. The plot has something to do with a rich, but corrupt man killed for a valuable necklace (it was the reason for the opening fight). Framed for the murder is the love of the rich man's wife who had been sent off to the wilds in the hope that he would be killed. The widow of course sides with her love and what transpires after that is the movie. Over the top nonsense is a bit of fun in the "I can't believe everything that's going on" sort of way. Best of all its amusing beyond the disbelief with some intriguing characters. And if nothing else its one of the few times a certain cliché about who's behind it all is at least partly right.
