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 »
First speaking role for Connery in minor "B" movie.
I didn't expect Sean Connery to have any dialogue for this little known "B" picture but to my surprise, he does have quite a few lines to act with. His character has no depth or significance however and isn't even given a name. He is one of many cast members involved in a simple story about a young boy who's accidentally locked inside a bank vault. The usual scenario follows: a race against time, the need to find a particular person who can help with the situation in hand, panicking characters etc.
No one in the cast is well known apart from Connery and he hadn't appeared in many films before this one.
The production moves along at a reasonable pace, dialogue is standard but the last few minutes includes a tense moment or two.
