Making a film is an expensive enterprise, and specially making a color film in 1945 was quite a risky business with hundreds of people and a big budget involved. It is hard to understand how a film like this could be made, but surprisingly it must have done OK at the box office because Yvonne De Carlo played almost the same role in Black Bart (1948). There is no reason for Jim Steed (Rod Cameron) to be in the film, he is just an observer and the real hero, Cleve Blunt ( David Bruce) has to go through so much non sense that it is laughable , to say the least. Poor Yvonne, she was a good and pretty actress, but to ask the audience to believe Cameron, Bruce, Walter Slezak and Albert Dekker are all astonished by her as she dances Blue Danube is to ask too much. If you want to see a camp movie it is better to see Ed Wood.
