Speed Limited is an apt title; the speed in this quickie is limited to that of the proverbial tortoise. Ralph Graves heads the All-Hasbeen cast, playing an FBI agent. Graves spends most of the film's molasses-slow 52 minutes chasing down a vicious kidnapping ring. He also juggles with the affections of a mystery woman (Evelyn Brent) and a dizzy heiress (Claudia Dell). Filmed in 1936, Speed Limited gathered dust for four years before it was picked up for distribution by the fly-by-night Regent corporation.
