Synopsis by Hal Erickson
PRC Pictures' final 1941 release was the auto-racing melodrama Blonde Comet. Virginia Vale stars as female race-car champion Betty Blake, the toast of the European racing circuit. Upon arriving in America, Betty finds she has a staunch rival in the form of devilishly handsome Jim Flynn (Robert Kent). The plot hinges on Jim's attempts to design a powerful new carburator, the efforts of the villain to scuttle this invention, and Jim and Betty's inevitable romance. Veteran racer Barney Oldfield appears as himself, delivering a appealingly amateurish performance.
