Too Hot to Handle

An action-packed drama, with news cameramen Gable and Pidgeon fighting for footage and the girl, a famous aviatrix, in locations as diverse as China and the Amazon jungle. Taken at face value, the picture seems dated and even objectionable, but there's a lively black comic edge to it that suggests appearances may be deceptive. The first sequence might have come from TV's Drop the Dead Donkey, with Gable unscrupulously shooting at Japanese planes to provoke an air raid on-camera.
