JEANNE COOPER in "Plunder Road"
Allow me to recommend this nifty little heist thriller from low budget producer Robert Lippert, Plunder Road (1957), one of his Regal Films released by 20th Century-Fox in glorious "Regalscope." Plunder Road, alas, seems to have survived in "pan and scan" only, but is is really not a story that lends itself to widescreen anyway and little is lost. A veteran cast that includes Gene Raymond, Wayne Morris and ElIsha Cook keep the wheels turning, literally, and one of my favorite actresses, Jeanne Cooper (of The Young and the Restless fame) appears as Raymond's girl and makes her few scenes count. As she always did.
