Young truck driver Dick Benson and his friend Alf Higgins set up their own haulage company with the financial backing of Tony Spinelli, an Italian restaurant owner. However, their former boss Arthur Wilson, concerned about the competition, uses underhand methods to try and sabotage the enterprise. Wilson sends his attractive daughter Ruth to seduce Dick, and a group of thugs to work over their trucks. Wilson very nearly succeeds, but Dick and the truckers make a success of themselves by rescuing miners trapped in a flooded mine.

Main cast


The film was made at Pinewood Studios as a quota quickie for release by Paramount Pictures.[2] The film's sets were designed by the art director Wilfred Arnold.[3]

Critical reception

In British Sound Films, David Quinlan considers the film a "saggy drama".[4]

Leslie Halliwell called it a "brisk action programmer".[5]
