The young and self-confident Danny bluffs at the local police-station that he will escape out of prison within one hour. What follows is a flashback about his childhood with his uncle and aunt, which are 'vaudeville'-artists themselves. We also follow the problems of Danny with the corrupt son of the mayor.Written by
Just watched this movie from an old tape in VHS format and was pleasantly surprised by the results. The story was strong, the writing top-notch and the actors perfectly cast- it make for an enjoyable, or should I say surprising, film that makes you feel better for watching.
The story follows a young Danny Masters, the son of famous deceased magician and escape artist, who leaves home to join his uncle and aunt in their performance of magic. Everything is fine until he meets Stu Quinones, the son of a corrupt mayor, and pickpockets a wallet that contains stolen money. Danny will learn much from his situation and we, the viewer, will be along for the ride as Danny's life is exposed.
This film is not action packed, nor is there stunning special effects but there is something about this film that is endearing. It is one of those films that when the credits roll you already want to see it again. Was not expecting much from the old VHS tape but got a treat from watching. Good Watch!
