Total Lack Of Chemistry
15 August 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was recently shown by BBC.I cannot recall that i have ever seen it televised before.This film supposes that Jean Simmons then just turned 23 would fall for a 40 year old Mature,looking nearer 60,and then stick with him through thick and thin.Now Mature was a good action hero but light comedian or dramatic actor he was not.How this role yearns to be played by Cary Grant.As it is Mature plays a fairly unlikeable character who has a penchant for gambling that the Simmons character abhors.So why does she stick with him?Given that this film was made under the Hughes regime it is little surprise that it comes off as a very lacklustre effort.
