Other than the wiggly presence of sexy Mari Blanchard in one her typical bad girl roles, this Republic programmer is distinguished by the inventive camera work of Jack Nickholas, Jr, who began his career as a camera operator on some of the best MGM musicals. For a low budgeter this film has any number of unusual crane shots and interesting camera compositions, the sort usually not found in such grind them out factory made fare. Some talented actors are totally wasted here, among them Gail Russell in one of her last roles. The great stuntman Whitey Hughes can be seen opening a door, and may have staged the flight action. An absurd plot, of course, but no worse that many.
