Businessman Gerald Axton goes to his ranch to rest, having had a near-heart-attack due to business worries. But while there (with his female assistant who makes his heart flutter as much as his business worries), a pair of escaped criminals crashes the party, as well as a plane load of passengers who literally crash in. Coincidentally, the plane was carrying the state's governor, whom Axton was at odds with, Axton's ex-paramour and her lover, whom Axton was sending away under false pretenses, and a reporter willing to write up all the sordid details.Written by

The radio at Axton's ranch is an extremely rare 1935 Zenith model 1000Z. Only 350 were made and it was priced at $750 ($13,900 in 2018). In 2018 these radios, completely restored, can fetch over $50,000. It is the "holy grail" for radio collectors and museums. See more »

Two years ago you were so conservative, you buttoned your underwear up the sides; now when you go past, people think it's the fire department out on a picnic!

Semi-rip of The Petrified Forest has a plane full of people crash landing on the field of a man (Lionel Atwill) being held captive by a couple robbers. There are a few good laughs here but the direction is so strange that it's hard to really get caught up in the film. There's very little suspense in the movie but there are a couple nice laughs, which help the movie move along. Wallace Ford playing the tough guy was a bit hard to believe and led to several unintentional laughs. J. Carroll Naish and Irene Harvey turn in good performances as does Atwill.
