Unlucky women
5 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Francis Lederer (James) is an artist with poor temperament, you know, prima donna style. He paints girlfriends who end up dead. This doesn't go un-noticed by Edward Ashley (John) who works with the police to get Lederer convicted of murder. One problem though - is Lederer actually guilty?

You know something is wrong in this film when Lederer invites Ann Rutherford (Linda) to his birthday party.......and the only other guest is his MOTHER! Yeah - that's normal for a young man. The cast are fine although the women are all given slightly irritating dialogue. Lederer is a good main focus for the film which ticks along but I'm afraid that's all it does - tick along.

The title refers to a painting which has a significance once the plot is understood and the idea behind the story will, no doubt, be familiar. However, despite a few slow patches, the film is OK. I have to add that my enjoyment of the film was hampered by the very poor sound quality of the film that I watched, although I am not sure whether or not this is due to my source of purchase.
