In fact, it’s CESAR ROMERO who’s dangerous in this Universal film. He’s a thief who thinks the lovely TALA BIRELL is one too. But Tala is actually a private detective trying to recover bonds that Cesar has stolen.
He falls for her and even when he finds out who she is, he can’t bring himself to get rid of her.
He takes off in a plane with Tala,piloted by his driver,WARREN HYMER who just happens to be a pilot too! The plane crashes and cue rescue by doctor WALTER PIDGEON and backwoodsman WALTER BRENNAN.
Walter ( Pidgeon that is) also falls for Tala who tells him what’s going on.Cesar,who has turned from a smart con man into a man obsessed would rather see Tala dead than with Walter.
Neat twist at the end.
Funny to see Walter Pidgeon in a relatively small part – his films with Greer Garson still to come.
I like seeing Cesar in dramas. I wondered what happened to the lovely Tala.
