The usual Poverty Row Corporation stuff. I have already seen tons of this kind of product. Billy - one shot - Beaudine is although always interesting to follow, as far as his films will remain B - or Z - grade and not charmless, if you may find some interest in them. But on the condition to watch these features only from time to time, and with not the same look as for a grade A picture. The same thing to look for a prize fighting heavyweight world championship, and besides to watch a local light weight competition...
I guess the both are worth. But only different, especially about the atmosphere.
This William Beaudine film may let you fall asleep or looking for your newspaper, only to fight boredom. If you're not a movie buff as I am, of course. As usual, as I expected, Long Horn has told it for you in the plot line above. So I won't repeat.
The routine. Just routine. But a rare gem. That's the most important.
