Fast moving Warner programmer
28 October 2012 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I did not expect anything different from this Warner Studios piece of work. Short, sharp, fast paced little adventure thriller, full of action. I sometimes thought I was watching a serial. Typical of the Warner films. I won't repeat the topic, already told just above. But keep in mind that the director B Reeves Eason made himself some serials before. So he has the background to do so. I am surprised that this little gem has not been commented yet.

Many other movies talked about this very same subject: the mob syndicate influence among truck drivers companies and unions.

A wonderful time waster for any movie buff searching for rare items, especially from the foolish forties.
