Enjoyable "B" Picture
16 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie on a compilation DVD distributed by Retromedia Entertainment - available for rental on Netflix. Quite entertaining with a nice performance by the handsome Peter Cookson, but the true bright spot was the performance by Jean Parker. The film was marred by some silly slapstick and weak humor - but still worth watching.

The copy of the film was in fairly good condition overall, but had some breaks in continuity. I look forward to seeing more films starring Miss Parker.

This sort of film is of interest to film history buffs as a typical product of one the lesser known Hollywood studios - Monogram Pictures.
