Enjoyable but utterly ridiculous!!
18 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Because this film was made by Universal Studios, it is slickly made and has a decent cast. In this sense, it's an excellent picture. Unfortunately, it's terribly written and has a plot that seems like it's from a cheap B-movie from a 3rd rate studio!

When the film begins, Nick (Cesar Romero) is a thief working with his gang to steal some bonds. Later, the gang disbands but Nick isn't about to end his wicked ways. After all, everything Nick does it for Nick. Later, he meets a lady crook--though I immediately thought she was a plant...which is what she turned out to be. Nick in enraged and murders her boss and frames her for it. But does the plot end there? No...not wanting to leave well enough alone, the writer is only about halfway through the movie and includes some incredible and ludicrous story...such as the pair being in a plane crash, a nice doctor (Walter Pidgeon) rescuing her and Nick and the lady being sent to death row! As I said, it's all ludicrous...and impossible to believe that it's even remotely possible.

The bottom line is that everyone in the film did a nice job on screen. Even the relatively unknown Tala Birell is quite good. But the plot is just dumb...really, really dumb. And what you're left with is a film that's watchable but only just...
