Shots of the County Courthouse show that the correct spelling of the actual Arizona county where the action is set is "Mohave". However, on one of the teletypes coming into police headquarters, the county's name is spelled "Mojave", the Spanish spelling. See more »
Filmed with the cooperation of the United States Guano Corporation, a subsidiary of New Pacific Coal & Oil, Limited. See more »
Great location photography, intriguing story involving bat guano (like Dr. Strangelove), cheesy script charmingly delivered by Cornel Wilde. A rare appearance by the gorgeous Victoria Shaw, who would have made a great Hitchcock heroine but made only a few films, and died at 53. Her red hair is perfectly matched to her colorful outfits. (Normally I never make a notice of costumes but she just looked incredible.) This is a very entertaining flick with plenty of 50's camp and an exciting finale.
