Saw this film when it came out.
When the film was released, Columbia booked it as a 2nd feature. Personally, after trying to sit through it, the studio probably should have shelved it, not necessarily for content, but because that use of flashy zooms became so difficult to sit through that I headed for the lobby more than four times.
In this instance zoom meant zooming in - cut - zoom out - zoom in-cut-zoom out all the way through the film.
The use of zoom lenses in motion pictures was a new tool for filmmakers at the time, but its application here made the film impossible to sit through, at least in a theatre. Until now, thought it had all but disappeared forever.
Not sure if time has changed any of this.
