Movie Info

It is all but impossible to dislike this ultra-cheap "Cold War paranoia" melodrama. Virtually the entire picture takes place on a single set, representing a rundown roadside diner. Lee Marvin plays the aptly named Slob, a lecherous short-order cook who lusts after shapely waitress Kotty (Terry Moore). Also interested in Kotty is a scientist known only as The Professor (Frank Lovejoy), who spends the better part of his free time at the diner's counter. It turns out that the Professor is a traitor, exchanging top-secret information with Slob, who's actually a commie agent. Only the Professor isn't a traitor, see, he's really . . . But why spoil the film for the uninitiated? For the record, Keenan Wynn and Whit Bissell are also in Shack Out on 101.more

All Critics (2)

For such a short movie packed with so much incident, Shack Out On 101 devotes an awful lot of its time to folks simply hanging out and shooting the shit, and it's richer for it.

The Dissolve

A snappy entry into those Red Scare movies from the Cold War paranoid period of the 1950s in America.
