Mainly of curiosity value!
23 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Mainly of curiosity value, though the script is so ordinary it will disappoint John Huston's admirers no end.

Fans of Robert Douglas will be none too happy either. They will hardly recognize their hero as the male lead. And worst still, there is a whole lot of boob-catering low comedy, with the male lead's obligatory side-kick.

Still, good old Edward L. Cahn's direction has one thing in its favor — the racing sequences are filmed on the spot with no process screens being used (though a process screen is used elsewhere in the film to provide a background for a romantic car-ride).

Why Eddie Cahn was specially imported for this "B"-feature is anybody's guess. He certainly doesn't do much better than the local "B" talent — a couple of tracking shots and that's about it.

As for the acting, it's both broad and clumsily over-emphatic. In fact, production values generally are inclined to be tatty, photography and art direction included.
