| Should have qualified for an annulment
Secret Valley probably got a lot more exposure than most B films of its kind due to producer Sol Lesser getting major studio 20th Century Fox to release this film. Darryl Zanuck must have owed Sol Lesser a big favor.

Still Secret Valley is a run of the mill modern western set in Nevada where Virginia Grey has gone for a divorce from gangster Norman Willis. As she explains to the first lawyer she consults Russell Hicks, they were married only two hours before she found out who and what he was. That should have qualified for an annulment.

When her second lawyer Jack Mulhall suggests her hiding out at a friend's ranch as opposed to some dude ranch that caters to folks establishing residence to take advantage of Nevada's divorce laws, it's Richard Arlen's place she winds up at.

Secret Valley was once again one of those films that had potential had it been done at a major studio with better care. It lurches from comedy to drama without any smooth transition. Still it does have some good moments. A lot of the comedy provided by Arlen's Chinese cook Willie Fung.

Secret Valley is an all right film, but nothing to get up at three in the morning to catch.
