Big Bill Summers (Cyril McLaglen) is the undisputed king of the dirt-track motorcyclists. He also fancies himself quite the ladies' man, and has set his sights on pretty young Jane (Ida Lupino). When rival racer Mitch (John Loder) moves in on Jane, Big Bill seeks revenge on the track, resulting in a serious accident and extensive injuries for Mitch. Barred from racing, Big Bill becomes a stunt rider, and in this capacity redeems himself. Sixteen-year-old Ida Lupino made her second film appearance in this British quota quickie (original title: Money for Speed), which managed to earn an American release in 1936, after Lupino had firmly established herself in Hollywood. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
