River Patrol

Incredibly amateurish and tatty film about the Water Guard battling a group of murderous nylon smugglers. This film makes PRC and Monogram films look like epics made by DeMille, and No Orchids for Miss Blandish like a genteel Victorian comedy. That all being said, it's still enjoyable and an interesting shabby time-capsule.

Incidentally, the IMDb credits do not match those on the actual film; I have followed the latter.

Thanks to Philly for his help!
