Good film - great cast - Avoid alternate version "Smokin'Barrel"
20 October 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Acting and production (including music) are top notch. Screenplay is well written. Entire cast is made up of major stars and great charactor actors which made this an entirely worthwhile "Saturday Matinee" in its day. Although not noted, this is a color film of about 81 minutes in length. There is some on-screen shooting & deaths ... but no blood; it could easily have a "General Audience" rating.

This film was also distributed in the USA in 1992/1993 by "Dominican Releasing, Puerto Rico" as "SMOKIN' BARREL"; perhaps this was a pirated release as shamefully all titles and credits were cut out ... and replaced with the two-word opening "SMOKIN BARRELL" and two-word closing "THE END"; no other information. The quality of this tape, recorded in the EP mode, is extremely poor visually with blurred images in high contrast; it is almost unviewable (although the sound is acceptable). The tape's box has numerous errors in the credits ... crediting Vaughn Monroe & Billy Gray as being in the film (they were not) ... and leaving off one of the two main stars ... Fred MacMurray ... as well as child star Tommy Rettig. It also states the film is rated "R" (believe me, it is NOT an "R" film). Avoid "Smokin Barell" ... but definately see any other good quality legitimate versions of this film.
