When Dr. Williams takes the cab to the Ace High Club in Tahoe, and is being followed by another car, they both depart a highway turn-off going in one direction. In the very next shot, without the camera position being moved at all, the two cars are shown going in the opposite direction past the very same location as the previous shot. See more »
John Howard plays one of a group of scientists who gather some criminals off of Alcatraz and offer them their freedom if they'll take part in an atomic experiment. Before this is carried off one of the men murders another but a nurse ends up taking the fall for it. Howard and the nurse end up teaming up to try and find out what really happened and why. I can't say this "B" film is a good one but it's certainly weird enough to warrant at least one viewing. I'm really not sure what the point of this film was and I can't say that I fully understood the story but director Cahn at least keeps the thing moving and it clocks in at a short 57-minutes. The actual story is far-fetched but I thought it was rather funny at how serious everyone was taking it. Howard is pretty good in his role as is Robert Shayne in his supporting part. The one scene that will always stick out in my mind is the most laughable fight I've seen in perhaps any movie. The convicts are working when a couple slow motion punches are thrown, which eventually leads to one man getting shot. Now, I'm really not sure if the filmmakers used an outtake or what but I'm trying to figure out why the sequence was shown in a slow motion. The actual camera speed wasn't slowed but the actor are just playing it out in slow motion. After the film I actually went back to watch this sequence a couple times and this thing alone almost makes me recommend the film.
