Most Dangerous Man Alive
Directed by Allen Dwan
Written by Phillip Rock and Michael Pate; story by Rock and Leicester
Benedict Bogeaus Production
What a sad swan song for veteran director Dwan, whose 50 years in the business and 407 films culminated in this dud.
This is the old story of a gangster who escapes from prison bent on vengeance against the rivals who betrayed him. There’s a love angle as well. To spice it up, the filmmakers have their protagonist escape during an atomic test, which mutates his cells into steel.
The science fiction aspect of this film is an afterthought. What you are really in for is a sub-par gangster flick. I could not detect any redeeming features.
