Juvenile Heroes
11 April 2003 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Amusing trifle with jaunty Harrison Ford and intrepid Junior Coghlan capturing hissable Ivan Lebedeff for the glories of newspaperdom and a front page headline: this sort of thing used to infest pulp magazines until it was driven into the comic books, but the charm of the stars -- also including the aptly-named Elinor Fair as Harrison Ford's rarely-seen love interest -- keep this chugging along at a good clip, never taking itself the least bit seriously, and wonderful fare for a silent kiddie's matinee when you don't want to look at another horse.
