A great movie for a lazy afternoon
18 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just happen to come across this movie as I am watching TV on a lazy afternoon. Thats back before a certain classic movie channel decided to annoy everyone by inserting TV ads during a movie. That is also when I used to watch AMC a lot and I was on the right channel at the right time. This movie is a true classic. I have yet to see another film like this one. Very enjoyable. I hope someday TCM takes a hint and brings it back. That is so other people can see it. They will not be disappointed. Anyone who watched Sky King will recognize Moose Tanner as the guy with a headlock on "Rex" in jail. So if anyone should happen to come across this movie on their guide, sit back and enjoy. It does not get boring towards the end like some movies do and it will always what they will say next.
