Goofs

When Joel fights with the man sent to fire him, he pushes the guy through a wooden railing and it can be seen where the board has been pre-cut. In subsequent shots, the ends of the board are more splintered. Also, one end of the board appears to be attached to the post by a hinge. See more »

Ty Hardin and Dorothy Provine
18 March 2011 | by williwawSee all my reviews

Warner Bros. had a stable of fine contract talent in the l960's such as Troy Donahue, Diane McBain, Peter Brown, Connie Stevens, and cast them in movies as well as popular WB series. In addition to the stars above Warners had Ty Hardin and Dorothy Provine under contract as both were very successful and popular in their Bronco and Roaring 20's TV shows.

Wall of Noise is a neat race track drama also starring Mrs. Troy Donahue at the time, Ms. Suzanne Pleshette and a fine performance by Ralph Meeker. The photography is via ace cinematographer Lucien Ballard. Quite a coup for a man of Ballard's stature to film a small film starring Warner contract stars. Recommend this movie to see fine young talent at work such as Provine, Meeker, Pleshette and Hardin. I wish Jack Warner had cast the zingy Dorothy Provine in more WB films. Dorothy Provine had Star charisma
