Storyline

Sherry Conley, a street tough and cynical woman with an unhappy family background, is taken from prison to a hotel, where the DA tries to convince her to testify against a mobster. Sherry is reluctant because the last witness was murdered before he made it to the stand, and why should she stick her neck out? At the hotel, several attempts are made on her life, and she falls for Vince, the policemen guarding her. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

Quotes

Lloyd Hallett: What possible difference could it make to you whether you move there or to the city jai?
Sherry Conley: Because movin' to the city jail is closer to the witness stand which is exactly the last place in the world I've decided I'm gonna be.
Lloyd Hallett: So that's really it then, isn't it?
Sherry Conley: Yeah.
Lloyd Hallett: Doesn't make any difference about the city jail. You've simply decided that as far as you're concerned everybody else can go hang.
Sherry Conley: You mean I've been keepin' this a secret from ya?

Stagey drama given life by gutsy Ginger.
22 November 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Ginger Rogers gives one of her best performances here, as a tough gangster's "moll" turned state witness. Her gutsy, strong and sexy performance carries the conventional plot. Robinson and Keith are fine, but they don't have much to do except get dazzled by Ginger - and who wouldn't be. It is a little hard to believe that Keith, at 34, would fall for Ginger, at 44, but that's all part of the illusion of glamourous Hollywood. Ginger looks great, but she does look her age.

The main problem here is the inadequate adaptation from a stage play - the action is too confined in the one room, and there is too much dialogue. But this is worth catching for the original Ginger Spice in full fireworks' mode.
