Eyes of the Underworld (1942) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Richard Dix, Wendy Barrie, Lon Chaney Jr., Lloyd Corrigan, Don

Porter

Directed by Roy William Neill



Print: black/white

Runtime: 61 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Some unexpected casting choices distinguish this so-so Universal

actioner. Richard Dix stars as police chief Richard Barry, whose present

respectable veneer obscures the fact that he once served a prison

sentence. When Barry is threatened with exposure by silky-smooth

gangster functionary Thomas (played by the usually lovable Lloyd

Corrigan), he is bailed out by his affable ex-con chauffeur Benny (played

by the usually villainous Lon Chaney Jr.) The perfunctory romantic angle

is handled by Wendy Barrie as Barry's faithful secretary and Don Porter as

the chief's rival-in-love. A remake of a 1929 crime flick of the same name,

this 1942 version of Eyes of the Underworld updates the material by

having the bad guys dip their crooked mitts into the bootlegged

rubber-tire trade.
