Well worth seeing just for the cast...
8 May 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of classic Hollywood films, then you might get a lot out of seeing this film--about, of all things, sexually transmitted diseases. Why? Because seeing J. Carroll Naish, Ward Bond and Tim Holt all playing guys with VD is such a shocker--after all, these guys and many other famous character actors appear in this seldom-seen film.

As far as the actual quality of the film goes, it is of dubious quality. While some of the information is quite correct, the preachy style probably resulted in many laughing off the important information in this short film. In addition, Naish should have been ashamed of himself for playing such an incredibly stereotypical Italian-American. It was almost as bad as having Chico Marx playing the part.

Well worth seeing for fans of the strange and obscure.
