(1958) Eva Bartok, Alexander Kerst, Sabine Sesselmann, Heinz Drache. Just what you've always wanted to see,a dubbed into English German exploitation quickie about the evils of loose women. Won't they ever learn. From 35mm.
Released on this side of the pond by Poverty Row studio Lippert Pictures, Norman Conquest has the former Falcon Tom Conway playing another private detective who starts heeding the voice of his male member when it concerns the alluring Eva Bartok and gets framed for murder.
It's a rather clumsy frame that all but thick as a brick police inspector Sid James can figure out. Even he's convinced after a while.
It all has to do with some stolen jewels and a Nazi war criminal thought dead but actually in Great Britain. Eva Bartok is from some unnamed Eastern European country and she's playing her own game with both her Communist satellite government and the baron. It all doesn't work out in the end with a climax taken from Destry Rides Again.
Conway must have felt he was back at RKO playing The Falcon. Norman Conquest has a rather muddled storyline and moves to slow even for a 75 minute running time. If you like Tom Conway and/or Eva Bartok I'd check this one out.
