| Roaring trucks and Roscoe Karns. What's not to like?
An ex-race car driver becomes a trucker (Richard Arlen, going from "Wings" to wheels). The plot dishes up enough action to keep things interesting. Roscoe Karns steals every scene he's in, as usual, but lovely Jean Rogers isn't given enough to do. This is a good example of the taut programmer that often held your attention as much or more than the main feature. I actually saw it in its first release on the second half of a double bill at the Hollywood Theatre in Kenosha. ("Speed to Spare" also had some great posters, and I found a few posted on the Internet.) As you can see, this picture was memorable and interesting enough for me to comment on it a half-century later, and I found a VHS copy of it last year. (No, I don't recall the main feature that night.)
