A Very Hard Film to Obtain
8 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Over the years I have always admired everything that Carole Landis performed in on the Silver Screen. This was her last film before her untimely death and a friend loaned me the tape which I have always wanted to see. I was not disappointed in the story or the acting, however, Carole Landis was simply beautiful and very sexy in her final role and was able to keep this film from completely falling a part. I simply cannot understand why this film is not shown on our regular TV stations in America, it is truly a great Landis Film. However, a real great film that Carole Landis performed in was, "I Wake Up Screaming", along with many other great veteran actors. If you love her films, try and view this last Swan Song for Carole.
