Storyline

The Crown Prince is to marry the Princess Brenda of Irania, but the Princess declines the arranged marriage. Relieved, Florizel heads for London, with the Colonel, where he seeks adventure and a good time. Talking with a stranger, he learns that there is a private club called the Suicide Club. Taking this to be a ruse or a trick, he joins in and sees a mysterious Lady that he has meet once before on his way to London. He will find that this club may not be a ruse and that the cold dark stare of this Lady might cost him dearly. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Trivia

Both David Holt (as Florizel as a Child) and Virginia Weidler (as Miss Vandeleur as a Child) are listed in the cast in some contemporary reviews, but they did not appear in the viewed print. In all likelihood, they were in the cast initially, but removed before the official opening date, and are credited in some of those reviews. See more »

A unique film... at the start
21 August 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Starts off really intriguing and seems to differentiate itself from other films of its era. A successful mix of comedy and suspense at the beginning, and Rosalind Russell looking so surprisingly beautiful, that she seems to come across in her early scenes as a black-haired Garbo. I've never seen her look more beautiful. The film is worth seeing for Russell's early scenes alone. But unfortunately, silly and unbelievable coincidences surface midway in the plot that considerably weaken and conventionalize the film. At its finish, I ended up feeling vaguely disappointed at what could have been a really unique and special film. I still think its worth seeing though, as the performances were all around quite good. A great film that could have been!
