COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
Presented by an impressive lineup of collegues and admirers, a documentary about the long-underrated talent of the late legendary action director William A. Wellman (1896-1975), one of Hollywood''s most distinguished journeymen helmers. William A. Wellman drew on his experiences as a fighter pilot during World War I to create a series of films about men of action as rugged, sentimental, raucous and tender as the director himself. He was equally noted for his off-screen battles with executives; and after building his career at Paramount and Warner Bros., Wellman vowed never to sign another long-term studio contract, and went on his way, refusing to take guff from anybody!

The absence of stagecoaches and covered wagons didn't keep director Joseph H. "Wagon Wheel" Lewis from employing his usual camera set-ups of shooting scenes from behind and through various props and fixtures, and the inclusion of a polo game enabled him to get his usual "hitching post" shot, in addition to shooting over and through automobile hood ornaments, champange bottles, baloons and mirror reflections. The soure that dubbed this one in the "musical" genre obviously never saw the film, as there are no songs and only a rinky-dink piece of music used at the Officer's Club dance. This one is about a gang of independent spys after a cigar-shaped device that guarantees accuracy on artillery and large weapons. The spys are headed by Paul Douglas (LeRoy Mason), Jean Bruce (Esther Ralston billed as Jane Carleton) and Frank Denton (Leon Ames), while Captain Todd Hayden (William Hall, in one of his rare starring roles and actually solo- billed above the title) is the protector of the device, and in love with the Colonel's daughter, Elaine Burdette (Jane Wyman, at the peak of her cute, bubbly and pouty stage.) Most of the action is placed at the Presido in Montery and most of it revolves around the outcome of a polo match between the Cavalry team and a civilian team called "The Rainbows", which star player Hayden has to throw in order to catch the spys.
