Looking more like it came from "B" action specialist Breezy Eason at Warners than little-known Frank Woodruff at RKO, this quickie little time-filler about crooked limo drivers trying to drive a bus company out of business accomplished what it set out to do, no more or no less. The script is serviceable, at best, if too talky at times, and leading man Charles Lang--in only his second picture--is rather colorless and bland and has no chemistry whatever with star Fay Wray, though she tries hard. There's some action on the road, and if you're a vintage-car enthusiast you'll really like all the shiny new--at the time--Packards, Chevys and other models sprinkled throughout the picture, and there's a pretty good though brief brawl near the end. Wray is still as beautiful and sexy as she was seven years earlier in "King Kong" and, as other reviewers have stated, is probably the best reason to watch this picture. It's OK, nothing more, and a decent way to pass the time. Nothing special, though.
