Description by OLDIES.com:
Produced independently in Monroe, Michigan, The Flaming Urge features Harold Lloyd, Jr. in one of his few leading roles. The son of the great silent comedian, he spent his whole life in his beloved father's shadow, tormented by chronic alcoholism and masochistic homosexual urges. Best remembered for his appearance in the drive-in classic Frankenstein's Daughter (1958), Lloyd had just finished filming Mutiny in Outer Space in 1965 when he suffered a massive stroke at the young age of 34. He died six years later. Ingenue Cathy Downs brings a smoldering sensuality to her role as the girl in love with the compulsive firebug. She played the title character in John Ford's My Darling Clementine (1946) and later starred in such fifties sci-fi classics as The Phantom from 10,000 Leagues (1956), The She Creature (1956), The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) and Missile to the Moon (1959).
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 75 ratings.
I'm not sure, that is, what this movie is. A little bit of light comedy, a little bit of a trained dog, a little excitement, a lot of stock footage of fires, a little bit of romance. That's the probelm: it's got a little bit of everything but not enough of anything to really keep your attention or interest.
