From models to murder
24 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Coleen Gray's gold-digging Rusty starts out by blackmailing her married lover, then sees opportunities in a model agency that's rehearsing in the same building. She's soon making a play for the boss, who falls for her, and everything seems fine until her old crooked partner Lennie, out on parole shows up. "We're a couple of first class heels who are made for each other". He decides to exploit the models by opening a photographic studio. It's not going to end happily.

The alternative title 'That Kind of Girl' is more accurate, as the narrative focuses on Rusty and Lennie, rather than being another expose of model agencies; the one here is entirely above board until his involvement. A routine and predictable story and the cheap production values prevent this from hitting the heights, but there's some snappy hard-boiled dialogue and the director works up some tension toward the end, with the final shoot-out well done. Howard Duff gives a convincing performance as the vicious Lennie, and Coleen Gray is effective as a woman who is not as smart as she thinks she is.
