Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Power is a rubber-stamp adventure flick from the very prolific Paramount Pictures. William Boyd and Alan Hale star as a pair of dam workers who, despite their strong friendship, duke it out on a regular basis. But when the dam threatens to burst, the battling buddies work side by side to rescue the deluge-threatened townsfolk. The principle source of friction between Boyd and Hale are a pair of "dames," played by Carole Lombard and Joan Bennett. Both ladies are ill-served by their tiny roles at this early stage of their respective careers, though Lombard exhibits more camera know-how than Bennett. Power was scripted by future director Tay Garnett.
