Routine programmer of note as Glenn Ford's screen debut but little else.

A unabashed Hollywood B-movie, whose story means much less than other machinations that corporate empire had up its sleeve. So the story is rushed and spat out simply to get it out of the way, not that its destination can't be worked out within the first five minutes, implausible as it is. Kids hobo it across the United States to a dream of a farm where they'll live the good life. The most interesting thing about the piece is the look at regular life glimpsed behind the story, like what it was like riding trains. We get early peeks at Glenn Ford and Richard Conte, both looking like kids playing at being adults. As entertainment finally, a rotten tomato, but seen historically ... well, its better then.
