Decent
2 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arpi Productions only produced two movies. This one and the following year, Sophia. Both directed by the same guy.

This film is a tight production however the public domain prints are horrible. They do not appear to come from a negative but from a direct transfer -- film to film.

That's means all the grays bleed out and you are left with blacks and whites in high contrast. Not enjoyable to watch.

Too bad. For a B picture it's not half bad.
