Edgar G. Ulmer
Gypsy Rose Lee,
I can appreciate that Edgar G. Ulmer made some good films on a low budget, this isn't one of them.
Every director intends to make a good film but sometimes budget, script and casting can fight against him. I don't know what the problems behind the scenes were, but what ended up on screen is a confusing mess. The plot is overly contrived and the performances are amateurish. With so many things wrong I can only recommend this film to die hard fans, those who have to see everything Ulmer made. On the positive side thank goodness for film festivals like CINESATION in Massillon, Ohio that played it this past October, 2005 so I could see it for myself. So see it if you must, but I cannot recommend it. And sorry my review seems to run on but the IMDb requires 10 lines.
