A vacationing British family is on the Arizona border with Mexico when their teenage daughter mistakes a criminal's stolen car for her family's and goes to sleep in the backseat. Not realizing she is there, the criminal drives the car to Mexico, where the girl witnesses a murder. When the parents realize their daughter is missing, they return to the diner in an attempt to locate her, but corrupt police forces on both sides of the border conspire to keep the daughter from her parents. A handful of honest citizens on both sides of the border try to help, but with the daughter knowing the truth about the car theft business, the criminals must keep her from reuniting with her parents. It's always good to see James Anderson, and here he plays a pivotal role in the effort to keep the parents from the daughter. Written by Ronny Bailey

When Mr. Saunders reads aloud the address from the phone book he says the address is, "Rte. 3," but when the listing is shown, it reads as "Rte. 3 State Hiway #6", which looks like a listing for two different people. See more »

Suspenseful even if Flawed
21 May 2016 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Guess I won't be going to the Arizona-Mexico border anytime soon. In Hitch's world, it's populated by car strippers, corrupt cops, and a nightmare Mexican town where the sun never shines. No wonder pretty blonde teen Loren is freaking out, as she tries to get back to her parents in Arizona after mistakenly taking a wrong car to Mexico. But everything she tries seems to backfire, while she's being chased by every low-life along the border because she's witnessed a murder. Poor Loren, she's a real damsel in distress, but where will her white knight come from.

There's good suspense in the premise, even though it and many story developments are not very plausible. But that's okay since we're wrapped up in vulnerable Loren's predicament. I expect actor Wilding did a rather minor role (Loren's dad) as a favor to fellow Englishman Hitchcock. It's also good to see that fine actress Anna Lee picking up a payday, along with the sinister James Anderson whose diner is not exactly a Denny's. All in all, it's a suspenseful hour, helped along by Crawford's compelling turn (catch the palpable feeling she projects as she parts with Pete, {Boone}). Just don't give plot developments too much thought.
