Did You Know?


The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Dreadful Film
28 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. In these days of health and safety regulations, PPE, risk assessments and method statements, it is impossible to believe that characters like those played by Richard Arlen, Chester Morris and Joe Sawyer behave in such a foolhardy way, violating just about every rule in the health and safety book. Even in those days H and S. played a part in the demolition operation particularly of a large hotel. Even worse is the fact that Morris and Sawyer play it so broadly that the audience were supposed to laugh at their antics. A character plunges to his death, but no one seems to either be upset or learn anything from the tragedy.No wonder Esther Dale's demolition company is going bust! On the plus side the special effects are OK for a B picture,Jean Parker is pretty and Esther Dale does her usual sterling character work. Of interest to movie buffs is down-on-her luck former star Evelyn Brent in what amounts to a bit part. Producers Pine- Thomas known in the trade as "The Dollar Bills" should have demolished the script and had it rewritten.
