This movie is really not that good !
29 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie today on TCM and it was really pretty bad even allowing for the year that it was made. The dialogue was beyond corny and I thought that the acting was just plain bad. Most of the time it sounded like they were reading the script off a teleprompter without prior rehearsal. The "dramatic" fight scenes were not very well staged and when you compare the long shots and close up's in the same scene you can tell that the continuity person (if indeed there was one) did not do a very good job either. When you see the type of performance that Paul Heinreid gave in Casablanca and Hollow Triumph I can only assume that it was the directing. Black and White maybe... but I cannot believe that they wasted Technicolor on this !
