Natural disaster vs blonde bombshell
27 December 2005 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

Republic Pictures produced and distributed this drama/love story starring Adele Mara who first appeared in Blondie Goes to College (1942) and last worked in the TV mini-series "Wheels" (1978). Amazingly, the script sounds like it was written about Hurricane Katrina however this time steelworkers rush to complete a bridge as a storm causes floods which destroy levees and imperil residents in a valley.

Backstory revolves around triangle romance between Adele and the two male leads who play the supervisor and foremen for bridge construction company. Who will she choose? This is the old clicking clock plot but it is interesting. The locations and sets are good and obstacles are realistic. Adele is quite a dish especially in her then stylish clothes which are amusing as allegedly she is just an unemployed waitress. But, who cares as she is a treat for tired eyes.

Good, simple entertainment.
