Moves Fast Enough to Make Audiences Overlook its Flaws
16 August 2017 | by MaliejandraSee all my reviews

The Coast Patrol was screened at Capitolfest in 2017 to a crowd ready to see some Fay Wray films, who was the spotlighted actress. It went over moderately well. The plot is only so-so but it never stops moving.

In a small coastal town, sophisticated Eric Marmont (Gino Corrado) runs a smuggling operation with Valerie Toske (Claire de Lorez). Young and naive Beth (Fay Wray) falls head over heels for Marmont even though he only sees her on the sly. Coast patrol agent Dale Ripley (Kenneth MacDonald) is onto him and lingers around town after he daringly rescues Valerie from drowning by jumping from an airplane. (Why she went water-skiing when she didn't know how to swim, I don't know.) Beth's father (Spottiswoode Aitkin) is over- the-top and plays several scenes like a stiff-jointed Frankenstein. In spite of its flaws, this movie is relatively entertaining.
