Quick Overview

Starring Frankie Darro, LeRoy Mason, Barbara Worth, Fred Kohler, Gloria

Shea

Directed by Alan James



Print: black/white

Runtime: 61 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Filled with stock footage from beginning to end of construction scenes

on Hoover-changed-to-Boulder Dam in Nedvada, this collection of all-star

B-feature names---most of them uncredited---stars an un-named dam

being built in California. Evans Construction Company has all it money

tied up and has to finish the dam on time in order to collect. But

crooked-banker Jefferson has other plans and sends the likes of Fred

Kohler, Wally Wales, Slim Whitaker and the Dillard brothers to sabotage

the work. The first order of business is to dynamite a mountain and cover

up John Ince so that water-boy Frankie Darro will have a crying scene and

vow ---between sobs--- to avenge his father's death. Frankie works his

way up from being Gunga Din to being the lead rider in the

mounted-police patrol organized by the owner's daughter as a force to

keep Kohler & Company at bay. Lovers of 1930s' construction sites,

unfunny-stuttering and cigarette-smoking and B-movie faces will find no

fault with "Men of Action."
