Awfully far-fetched but enjoyable.
14 February 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Richard Denning is an actor pretty much forgotten today. However, back in the 40s and 50s, he played rugged leading men in B-movies--as well as the Governor throughout the old "Hawaii Five-O" series. Here he plays a rather different role--an angry parent trying to hold on to his adopted daughter. It seems that a recent murder is somehow connected with a bizarre plot to try to overturn the adoption--even though it occurred seven years earlier. Why--and who is behind all this? Denning is ticked and determined to find out--even if it kills him.

This is a very low budget film. It's pretty obvious--especially since you'll see Sid Melton in a small part--and his appearances are ALWAYS in cheapo productions! However, for a lower budgeted film, it actually is pretty interesting and worth seeing--even if the plot is awfully far-fetched. And Denning does a fine job--as does the child actress. My only gripe is the creepy plot device where the kid keeps talking about one day marrying Al--a 50 year-old guy! And, he talks about it too! Yikes!!
