Another Early 50's Action Adventure
7 September 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Back in the time before slice'n dice and gratuitous violence dominated the screen, the action adventure had its day. These were usually short films and focused on a family situation where the bad guys were about to take the family enterprise and the hero steps in and saves the day. This film is one of these, where scoundrels are set to take the family fishing boat and the son comes back from the military to foil their nefarious plans. Wayne Morris is about the only name of note. He had been a naval pilot during WW2 and fell into a number of these roles. He died of a heart attack while participating in a Navy Day exercise during the early 60s. If you've seen this film, it was likely a filler on the late show and probably did not make much of an impression. But, to kids like me back then, it was great to see the bad guys get their butts kicked.
