Another that should be seen
A younger, cuter Bobby than seen in the already available 'ESCAPE TO PARADISE', so all due thanks to the Perlinger Archive. Caught up, as usual, in a paper-thin storyline, Master Breen continues to cope well enough to emerge as that rare commodity, a likable moppet who fills his role in a delightfully natural way. A pre-Pearl Harbor Japanese bad guy is as tense as the drama ever gets but there are a couple of decent songs which almost survive the IL' missing frame caper. One thing about the Breen movies, money and time WERE spent on the musical side of things - and it shows. Despite this, the Archive is doing more to keep the 30's and alive than any other single source so, as an important part of that decade, this earns its place on any 30's listing.
