| a rare Lola Albright
A friend recommended me A Cold Wind In August and I discovered the sensual Lola Albright. I remembered her in Champion and Joy House. And I finally found this little B movie directed by Seymour Friedman (who had directed the interesting Chinatown At Midnight).

Well, this isn't a masterpiece, but it's an entertaining movie in the wrestling world with convincing fighting scenes, thanks to Willard Parker and his athletic silhouette in his laid back character. I don't remember having seen him in another movie, and it's a pleasure to discover this nice fellow.

The script is written by George Bricker who wrote other B crime movies such as The Mark Of The Whistler, Inside Job, Roadblock, The Whip Hand, Man In The Dark, Loophole and Cry Vengeance (directed by Mark Stevens, beloved by the same friend who recommended me A Cold Wind In August).
