The "mile-a-minute man" in this action quickie is one "Speedy" Rockett, played by William Fairbanks. Speedy's dad O. I. Rocket (George Periolat) is a car manufacturer, so it stands to reason that Rocket's top racecar driver is his own son. The plot thickens when Speedy falls in love with Paula Greydon (Virginia Brown Faire), the daughter of Rocket's chief rival. This modern-dress Romeo and Juliet dilemma is resolved to everyone's satisfaction during the climactic Big Race. Curiously, Mile a Minute Man was released sans production credits for it initial New York showing.
