About what you'd expect from a low-budget B-movie.
8 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Long before he became famous as the cowboy 'Hopalong Cassidy', William Boyd was a star during the late silent and early talkie periods. By about 1936, his prospects had diminished a bit and by the mid-30s he was mostly making B-movies for smaller studios--in this case Winchester. Now this does not mean they were bad films--just lower budgeted ones that had relatively simple plots because the films were barely an hour long. Of all the B genres, the murder mystery movies were among the most popular. Now "Go Get 'Em, Haines" does not begin as a murder mystery. The reporter, Haines (Boyd) is following a tycoon aboard a cruise ship looking for a story but soon a murder occurs and who better to solve it other than our handsome hero (well, actually, the POLICE would be a good bet...but you rarely see them called in initially in such films).

Overall, "Go Get 'Em, Haines" is about what you'd expect--a mildly entertaining film where the leading man does a very good job. This isn't surprising, as Cassidy had already made quite a few films and had a nice, natural manner in his acting. Not a great film by any stretch, but not bad and a decent time-passer.

By the way, I complain a lot about the prints on Alpha Video's DVDs. However, I must admit that this one is pretty good--clean and worth seeing.
