Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Already in his forties, Creighton Hale had no small difficulty conveying the extreme youth of his character in Speeding Thru. Hale is cast as a college student who aspires to become a champion racecar driver. Pledging eternal loyalty to his sweetheart Judy King's auto-manufacturer father Lionel Belmore, Hale is dragooned into taking a job with Robert McKim, Belmore's biggest rival. The plot is resolved during the traditional last-reel Big Race, highlighted by a spectacular slow-motion crash. Speeding Thru was predictable from start to finish, but auto aficionados went home happy.
