Lots of Action
22 June 2017 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

It's a really bang-up climax as Blackie and baddie Harry (Leeds) tangle on moving bridge platforms. If the flying fists don't get you, the huge lifts will. I expect that was one of the cargo bridges down in LA's Long Beach area. Anyway, kudos to whoever decided to film there; it's truly novel and exciting. And if you didn't recognize him, that's Billy Halop of the Dead- End Kids as Johnny. Johnny's got a grudge against Blackie for helping to send him up a few years back. Now Blackie's trying to help him go straight by separating him from his criminal brother-in-law Harry. But it's a struggle. Halop's certainly good at projecting toughness and poignancy at the same time, a really difficult act. Anyway, there's lots of action, a look at LA streets circa 1952, and a disguised torpedo as Blackie's car. Of course there's also the fetching Lois Collier as Mary. And shouldn't forget Whitey whose tail amounts to a happy windmill. All in all, it's a solid series half-hour.
