A disaster movie long before they became popular in the seventies and thus a movie ahead of its time for that matter.The characters are not too much cardboard ,and thanks to John Wayne and to sir Cedric Hardwicke ,when the movie ends ,you do not know exactly who the "villain" was .Laraine Day is beautiful ,she resembles Linda Darnell and she is cast as the tycoon's daughter who falls in love with ... (well,I won't write a spoiler!).The movie is quite enjoyable and even features very good scenes : Wayne and Day,attending the office,and admiring each other ,under the girl's governess watchful incensed eye (Judith Anderson:who else?);in a more tragical mood,the death of the thirty-year-old man afraid of graveyards since he was a child and who wants to be buried in the tunnel is really moving.Aventures and melodrama.
