Father Dan, an aging priest whose parish is in the slums, is warned by his church-superior to improve his own and the parish financial position rather than giving all he has to members of his congregation and strangers, or he will be transferred. In spite of this warning he becomes involved with a couple of race-track bums, a newly-wed ex-convict with job problems, and a bank-robbery of which he is accused. None of this sets well with the monsignor. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Did You Know?


Father Dan: We don't harass the Lord enough. We should be more demanding, like a small boy asking his father for a bicycle. Ask for your inheritance. Ask for a miracle, a couple of miracles. Demand your share. Holler! Our rich father isn't very far away. After all, all you're asking for is a fair shake. It shouldn't take much of a miracle for that.

A Classic B movie
23 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Yes, it's corny. Yes, the story's premise leaks all over the place, and yes, it's a long way from reality. But, what we see here is the late 50s and early 60s where you could get away with the corn, gags and stereotypes that show up on the sweet side. In this wonderful little film, they shake out the box with dozens of character actors whose faces you seen in films for years.

I recall seeing it as a second feature years ago and I didn't enjoy it as much then as I did watching it again. Those were wonderful days and movies like this help us aging old guys recall the innocence of that time.
