Weldon Heyburn, Poverty Row's answer to Clark Gable, stars in the lively little cheapie Dynamite Delaney. Filmed with the cooperation of the State Highway Patrol of Pennsylvania, the story concerns a brash and none-too-likeable motor cop (Heyburn) who manages to get himself thrown off the force. Our hero redeems himself by tracking down a gang of ruthless kidnappers. The forgotten Eve Farrell shows up as Heyburn's waitress girlfriend, while former leading man and RKO casting director Donald Dillaway plays a secondary role. At 77 minutes, Dynamite Delaney was about two reels longer than the average action quickie.
