| A Real Gem
I am surprised that this film has such a low rating. I watched it for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. As noted previously, Douglas Fowley who usually plays the villain really is perfectly believable as the hero. He always has such an ingratiating persona that I find it difficult to dislike him even when he is the "bad guy". He was truly a fine actor who deserves more acclaim. Clem Bevans was truly humorous as the supposedly wealthy businessman. The story was suspenseful and funny. Although it would be considered a "B" movie, it has more entertainment value than many "A" films.

I think so highly of this movie that I am going to keep it as a dvr recording until I purchase it on VHS or DVD. This is a gem that deserves more show time on television. I rank it an 8.
