When summing up the film in the New York Times, Howard Thompson, the film critic known for his one line reviews, simply stated: "This picture is trash." See more »
The trailer that the gangsters lived in is a 1952 Kenskill, 30 foot model. This model had a furnace between the door and built-in frig. The furnace is missing in the movie. Also the lower cabs in the kitchen are missing. Only the upper cabs are there. There is no range and no kitchen sink. Instead there is an easy chair under the small kitchen window where the kitchen sink (lower cabs) would have been. See more »
Like others on this board, I'm surprised that Joan Crawford would call "This Woman is Dangerous" her worst film. This from the woman who made Straitjacket, Berserk, and Trog?
"This Woman is Dangerous" was Crawford's last film at Warners, and perhaps she felt like she was headed downhill at Warners the way she had headed downhill at MGM. By then she was used to seeing the signs. But for the viewer, on the surface, at least, the movie is serviceable. Crawford stars as Beth Austin, a gangsteress with vision problems and a jealous boyfriend, Matt Jackson (David Brian). She goes to Indiana to have a special operation by a known surgeon, Dr. Halleck (Dennis Morgan), and the two develop feelings for one another. Knowing the good doctor's fate at the hands of her beau if she gives in, Beth resists his advances.
The film is a strange mix of romance and film noir, but the tension is always there. Phil Carey plays Brian's brother, and the two have a volatile relationship; Matt is always sure Beth has run off with another guy; the police are looking for Beth.
Pretty good, though it drags a bit.
