Trivia

The "gas van" at the end of the movie that the gang leader was using to kill his gang is very similar to the "gas vans" that the Nazis used at the beginning of WWII. See more »

There Is One Reason To See This Movie
29 May 2006 | by HandlinghandelSee all my reviews

And one only, in my opinion.

That reason is Margaret Leighton. She is a wonderful actress, on-stage as well as on the screen. We have few chances to see her, though. I think that's especially true in the United States.

Here she plays a sympathetic role. Not only that but she is also very pretty and meant to be something of a bombshell.

Walter Pigeon does not hold up the tradition of Drummond performers. He is always reliable but he's not much fun. He's not a rascal or a knave. Consequently, this seemed to me a talky endeavor with little action or suspense. But check it out for Leighton.
