Well-worth watching
21 April 2008 | by (Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

I have nothing against the other reviews, but they do not seem to convey the message that this movie is well-worth watching. Almost anything Glenn Ford was in was worth watching and for that reason I watched this one morning and was thoroughly delighted. The pace of the movie is quite lively and the various actors all competent in their various roles. The direction and editing were also good and to get all that in a movie spells just what you want in a film - entertainment! There are a substantial number of humorous moments, lines and scenes. The viewer gets drawn into the events just as do the cast which is their role in the movie. I have seen almost all of the films starring Glenn Ford and this is not a typical "Glenn Ford" movie and was not on any "must see" list of mine. Although he performed admirably, any number of people could have played his role. The value of this movie is in its production and enjoyability.
