Inventors doing their stuff for their country
Interesting, if not entirely factual, early hi-jinks with the production of the television.
The inventors in this case are going forward with the purpose of producing a finished article suitable for use by the USA military, with the intention to donate it to their government, an understandable theme for the movie considering it was made in 1939.
Naturally an assortment of very interested characters are portrayed, ranging from the bitter scientific rival, his slightly ditsy daughter, all the way to the surprise Nazi agents and their costly thugs.
Anthony Quinn makes the most of his part as one of those thugs, whose motto may well be that no task is too dirty if there is money involved, the more money, the more he'll enjoy the task.
Watch it for a bit of casual entertainment, lasting just under an hour, it's perfect for that time inside out of the weather, but don't expect too much, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
