Elliott Nugent''s surprising film for a pre Eliott Ness role for Stack.
8 January 2021 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

First, Elliott Nugent was not specialized in westerns at all, nor in film noirs or sci-fi...Only? or may I say? mostly comedies and light hearted films. So this one can be seen as a performance from him, and a pretty efficient one. And what a surprise to see Bob Stack in a villain role, "gentle and sympathetic" villain, and also a Mickey Rooney in a unexpected role too; though not as terrific as the one he'll have in THE LAST MILE; Only Preston Foster is here as a classical character for him, the forever, lead character's friend or sidekick. good little film, from Eagle Lion's productions.
