Editorial Reviews

Former Coastguardsmen Jim Benson is about to lose his boat when a couple approaches him for a fishing charter. Jim departs just ahead of the Sherrif with drunken Shanks, and his companion Sally (Gates). Shanks takes off into a small Mexican village after a fight with Jim, stranding both Sally and him with no money. Two local men hear of Jim's plight, and offer him money to smuggle a batch of illegal aliens, called Wetbacks, into the U.S. He agrees but is blackmailed into continuing to run the smuggling operation. Afraid, Jim decides to make a run for it, but someone close to him reveals themselves as a US Immigration agent and asks him to assist them in shutting down the smugglers for good.

When a film has a racist slur as its title, you known it's bad. When the only good review is a guy who liked his dad being an extra, you know it's worse.

Boring, dull dull dull. Except when it's being racist. Even the "good guys" in this film are racist towards Mexicans. Would it be so hard to call them Mexicans instead of a racist slur? Would it be so hard to give them more than two lines, or not be stereotypes?

You might fall asleep. Or it might turn your stomach with its sick racism if you can stay awake.

I wanted to watch this movie because back when it came out originally in 1956 my family went to see it because my dad told us that he was in it in one scene as an extra....about three or four minutes from the end there is a scene on board an ocean going tanker with two ships officers in the back ground interacting with the actors.....one of those figures was my dad...so seeing this movie some 55 years later was a real trip.

This seems to be my week for bad films; and this one was one of them. This is really a good one to miss.
