Bland And Familiar
22 August 2004 | by NoirFan62See all my reviews

Had a chance to check out this "B" quickie the other night and didn't think it was anything special. With it's 57 minute running time, fairly bland characters and familiar plot, it felt more like an episode of some 1950's anthology series as opposed to a movie. Basically, Ellen Drew plays a woman who marries a mobster (Regis Toomey) without knowing it and becomes innocently implicated in a murder her husband commits. The authorities are after her so jilted love, Robert Lowery, a park ranger, hides her away in a cabin on a remote mountain-top because he correctly believes she is innocent. The gangster husband followed them and now holds his wife hostage in the cabin. Not really much action here until the end when a car chase ensues around the twisting roads of the the mountain but that's really about it. Lot's of corny dialogue and weak attempts at comic relief by Eddie Quillan as Lowery's partner. Probably the best thing about the movie are some of the outdoor location shots utilized by Director William A. Berke that gave the film a nice atmosphere. All in all, it's probably a film that should be passed up unless your an absolute hard core crime film nitwit like I am.
