Hedy heats up the screen
20 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a story and well acted. Hedy as a teenager and then into a grown woman. She was fantastic looking and fantastic in it. I thought George Sanders, whom I admired as an actor was miscast though. Louis Hayward was excellent as the weak son. In fact everyone in it was well cast. Too bad it wasn't in color, or done by a major studio. I could of sworn the little girl that portrays Hedy as a child was also fantastic for her age. She even looked like Hedy may of looked like at that age. Definitely worth watching.
