Overdone but more watchable than most films of its time.
5 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The humor is very broad in "The Gibson Goddess", that's for sure. However, despite having a lot of cheese, the film is still pretty watchable today--something that can't be said of many films from this time.

The film starts off with a pretty woman who looks like a Charles Dana Gibson girl come to life arriving at the beach. She is quite pretty and EVERY lecher that sees her starts to follow her until she practically has a small army of pervs following her. Everywhere she goes, she is bothered by these goggle-eyed idiots. So, she devises a plan and in the end she outsmarts them.

I liked this film mildly. I also really liked seeing the seaside and the way the lady looked (with her highly corseted Edwardian figure) from a historical point of view--giving us a nice insight into the way things looked in this bygone age. Overall, it's a film that those who love VERY old films might like, but I must admit that it is not exactly going to thrill the average viewer.
