Lively B movie.
16 July 2006 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

This now forgotten production line support had many of the qualities that once made the standard Hollwood entertainment compelling. I remember this from my early viewing, among a parade of often more ambitious product.

It has the strip cartoon - serial imagery and subject matter that TV would imitate but never manage to mass produce in this manner. Kent Taylor in his bomber jacket is very "Terry and the Pirates" and the plot with secret identities, hidden rooms, exotic locations and the threat of hideous tortures administered by fiendish orientals offered all the matinée delights a youthful viewer would look for.

Seen again now it is simple minded but it's self confidence bolstered by major studio production values - even if they are jammed into a small budget - does engage. And it's acquired added nostalgia value.
