Beautiful scenery, good music, interesting story...I'd see it again!
I saw this movie in a theater back in the early sixties. At the time, I remember thinking that it was entertaining in the context of a "B" movie. Sure, it wasn't Oscar material, but it did have a story to tell and at no time did I think that it was a waste of time.
I thought that the the film work was quite good and that the music was also good. It was filmed at the Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I remember thinking what a great setting.
There was no dearth of talent in the making of this movie. I seem to remember Vicki Raaf as appearing in a movie with Marilyn Monroe.
I remember seeing Paul Bryar in a score of television shows in the 60's and 70's as well as a couple of Hitchcock movies. Jimmy Cross also appeared in several TV shows, a Hitchcock movie, and the original Poseidon Adventure.
These people all gave good performances. The writers Flohr and Parsons also had television writing experience.
In conclusion, I would like to say that this show has a place in our film history. Some would even say that it stands with some of Ed Wood's work, but I leave you to judge that.
I just know that I thoroughly enjoyed it 40 years ago and would love to see it again!
