Goofs

Seeming error. I realize that 1957 was an earlier time with different methods and equipment, but the medical professionals--including two doctors on the scene--were way too slow in waiting until they got the boy into the ambulance before beginning to attempt resuscitation. Today, resuscitation attempts would begin as soon as the medics got their hands on the patient. See more »

2 April 2004 | by JAYLBEESee all my reviews

Happened to (accidently) see this travesty on UK TV a few days ago. It might have been better if the audiences had been locked in the bank vault and the actors (I use the word actor in its loosest context) left outside to get on with it. This film can be bracketed with 'Plan B from outer space ' as the joint worst films of all time. Their is no aspect of this film (even allowing for its age) for which (search as I may) I can find any redeeming feature. Ghastly dialogue,, wooden acting and risible photography all vie with each other to win the prize of supreme awfulness. A story line which defies belief and a child 'star' of somewhat limited intelligence and mind-numbing mediocrity, not to mention a character which qualifies as an irritant of the first magnitude - see it at your peril, there is no known antidote !
