I expected worse

I was afraid before viewing this little flick produced by the sinister Sam Katzman, one of the worst producer Hollywood had ever known.

But I was finally pleased with it. A short movie, well paced, with rather acceptable performance of the actors. Jon Hall is OK, so Georges Reeves - out of his Superman outfit.

The story of a crew aboard a ship combating rebellion. Good action, but drowned in the middle of bad acting and too much talking.

I was the first surprised not to be bored with this feature. Try it.

And Jean Yarbrough's films deserve to be seen. If you love B movies, of course.
