unusual femme fatale film
12 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hedy Lamarr once said that the key to appearing beautiful is 'to stand still and look stupid', but here she proves she could act when required to. As the daughter of a drunk, Jenny has ambitions to rise in the world and become beautiful, using her wiles to subdue and bewitch men into doing her bidding. With a rich and older husband with a weak and easily led son, you can see where this is going, and with people like George Sanders and Louis Hayward supporting her in the cast, Hedy shines in the title role.

A beautifully shot, tightly written film which may have been low budget but has a definite sheen of polish.
