| Sal Mineo is excellent as usual
Sal Mineo once again proves he was one of the 1950's brightest most talented stars in this very entertaining,touching film. Sal Stars as an orphan who is subjected to many hardships and discovers how important it is to be true to one's self and rise above the negativity. Along the way,a former fellow orphan returns as a rich successful man,and tries to sway Sal to change his ways in order to become a success. He also has many problems with a fellow envious orphan and is taken hostage by an escaped convict during the climax. Throughout the entire film,Sal Mineo keeps the audience interested with his superb,compelling acting. He delivers a typical knock-out performance and Sal easily carries this entire film single handed. In this role,Sal delivers a character with guts and toughness, yet manages to give him a bit of heart and vulnerability as well. Sal Mineo NEVER gave a bad performance. Sal Mineo's talents are very under-rated and it's time people remember this great icon,and this film deserves to be released on home video. Highly entertaining and a treat to any Sal Mineo fan. I am owner of Sal's official website and strongly recommend this film to be released on video.
