Pine-Thomas Productions' High Powered is the mixture as before, a two-fisted adventure tale with a melodramatic "tortured hero" subtext. High-rigger Tim Scott (Robert Lowery) can't get over the fact that his brother died in an on-the-job wiring mishap. Nor does Rod Farrell (Roger Pryor), who holds Tim responsible for the fatal accident, intend to let him get over it. Tim gets a chance for redemption in the climax, when it looks as though the same accident is about to occur again. Former 20th Century-Fox starlet Phyllis Brooks provides the obligatory love interest.
