Racing Vehicle
17 September 2002 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

A star vehicle for Wallace Reid, and a sequel to his earlier success, THE ROARING ROAD. It's also one of the few decent prints of any of his majors roles that survive.

Reid is an ex-racing driver now, settled down with a baby - -- played by his son, Wallace Reid, Jr. -- and his wife doesn't want him to speed anymore. But his father-in-law, played by the irrepressible Theodore Roberts, is putting up a new car to set a record from Los Angeles to San Francisco and wifey has walked out on Reid, with baby, to San Francisco, where the baby is sick.

Will Reid win the race? Will the baby be all right? Will Theodore Roberts steal the show? Fans need not worry, but will want to see this anyway.
