Pete Ramsey (Morris) is a hard-working coal miner who falls in love with and marries scheming showgirl Victory Kane (Kelly).

As an admirer of both Chester Morris and Morgan Conway, I enjoyed this film up to a point. Much of the transfer is both grainy in quality and the soundtrack is extremely unreliable;going from barely audible to very loud.The plot is a mixture of 'noir' and action/adventure and quite well executed by the screenwriters,unlike typical 'disaster' films of today. I gave this film 3 stars,because I like the actors;the storyline and the 'no nonsense' approach in telling the story.I guess in those days they did't have the time or budget for too much 'filler'. If a better transfer of the movie became available in the future, I would purchase it.

Great b-movie with a lot of action and suspense acted by an outstanding cast of reliable b-genre actors. It goes to show what can be done on a small budget .Producers William Pine and Thomas weren't called the "dollar bills" for nothing.
