Rating is for nostalgic value
2 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is very entertaining movie - - not GREAT - - but,then, there are more average movies made than any other. Perhaps my high rating is based on nostalgia, but aren't movies supposed to evoke such emotions? This is one of those matinées from my childhood, early teens to be exact, that I would take the time to watch whenever I discovered that it was going to be on TV. Now, very few old movies are on TV, being replaced by new "classics" from the 60's, 70's, etc. I just think it's too bad that films like this will probably never be transferred to DVD, and if they are, they'll be done by third rate companies like Goodtime and Alpha.
