I bought this little gem on the merits of it having lovely Joi Lansing in a small yet essential supporting role. Joi plays the femme fatale that almost causes leed John Bromfield to get arrested for murder. Joi is probably best known for her role as Sgt. O'Hara who pretends to marry Superman, in the classic Adventures of Superman t.v. series starring George Reeves.
The plot is simple. Good Guy John Bromfield, works for a Used car Lot that happens to sell Hot (Stolen) Cars. When he discovers the dealership is dealing said cars, he storms off. But, his baby child is sick, and John Can't afford to quit without being able to get the money needed to pay the Hospital bills.
Against his better judgement, he remains at the dealership. In steps Hot Car investigator Dabbs Geer. Will John do the right thing and possibly cause his son future illness?
Crystal Clear footage of vintage 50s cars and scenery. Seeing Joi at her sexy best is a bonus.
A great way to spend 62 breezy minutes. Recommended.

HOT CARS (UA,1956) is a terrific little B-movie that packs a suspenseful wallop in a scant 60 minute running time. I watched it on Netfilx on a whim and liked it well enough to pick it up off Amazon.

Directed by Donald McDougall, HOT CARS stars John Bromfield as an honest used car salesman who loses his job and gets roped into selling stolen cars in order to raise enough money for his baby son's operation. When a cop (Dabbs Greer) who is investigating the hot car racket is murdered, Bromfield is framed for the crime by his boss (Ralph Clanton). The rest of the supporting cast features some familiar '50's faces - and figures. Second billed pin-up queen Joi Lansing is quite good as a sexy blonde who finds honest suckers to work for Clanton's crooked dealership. Carol Shannon plays Bromfield's loyal wife and Mark Dana is greasy as Clanton's strong arm man. Veteran screen heavy Robert Osterloh is Bromfield's pushy employer who gives him the axe. Dabbs Greer was in a lot of '50's T.V. shows, such as THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, and turns in a good performance as the persistent cop.

The film projects an authentic feel due to its mostly on location shoot at Big John's and Johnny O'Toole's used car lots and surrounding area in Culver City. The exciting climax with Bromfield and Dana slugging it out aboard a speeding roller coaster without the aid of process photography must've been inspired by the opening sequence from THIS IS CINERAMA (1952).

This DVD-R offers a high polished print of HOT CARS in its original 1:33:1 aspect ratio with crisp audio. The vintage cars are great to look at, and the film gives us an intriguing glimpse into the machinery behind the used car business. Anyone who is into classic '50's cars will enjoy this noirish, surprisingly good programmer.

A fun and"ok" period piece with all the normal good guys vs. crook stuff. Production Values were very like drama/crime TV of the day and the acting was predictably wooden given the no name cast. Some(not many) neat shots of 1950's Los Angeles.

I saw this recently and Instantly on Netflix,It is a decent movie,not much or at least as much as I would like To see of cars, Except Chryslers,Caddies and others in the background,Chop Shop and an Semi-Truck(Auto Carrier)The premise is simple and so is the acting,you pretty much are expecting what is going to happen but nonetheless a good ending and Cars are involved even if at a small level,at least it does not have music or musical involved as some hot rod/car movies of the era feature.

Used car salesman, Nick Dunn (John Bromfield- REVENGE OF THE CREATURE, MANFISH), gets mixed up w/ the wrong crowd after being fired from his job. He winds up working for a rival car lot, run by a criminal mastermind. Nick soon finds himself deeply involved in the auto theft underworld, after his son becomes ill and needs an operation. Things go fairly well, until an ex-cop gets nose-y. Murder quickly follows, and Nick is the prime suspect! HOT CARS is an entertaining crime drama / morality tale from 1956, packed w/ 50s ambiance, and culminating in the wonderful "fight-to-the-death-on-a-roller-coaster" sequence! Co-stars the beautiful Joi Lansing (TOUCH OF EVIL, THE ATOMIC SUBMARINE) as the seductive Karen Winter...

I give this film a 3 just because it's a "B" movie. There are a lot of classic cars from the 1950s, one hot dame, and lots of cool old signs from the good ol' days. The story line is fair and the acting is decent. I'd watch it again just to see what things looked like in the simpler era of the 50s.

Typical B-Movie from the 1950's and early American-International. Familiar faces include John Bromfiled, Joi Lansing and Dabbs Greer. Interesting old cars including a 1956 Chrysler New Yorker convertible.

Great scenes of typical Southern California used car lots in 1956. Simple plot, handsome leading man, buxom temptress, exciting finale. Good solid entertainment.
