Powder Town Reviews

O'Brien plays a loony scientist hired by the Army to continue research on a formula for explosives he has invented. He is sent to a powder factory, and foreman McLaglen is given the job of watching over him. Numerous spies larded throughout the plant, including its top executive, attempt to get their hands on the formula. O'Brien is miscast as a zany scientist type, with the awkward direction doing little to help him along. The script as a whole doesn't hold together.
