Once director Robert Aldrich got around to shaping her latter-day career, Joan Crawford did some very good films, this being one of them. Absorbing nonsense is gusty and often ridiculous...still, I wouldn't have it any other way. Crawford is quite strong here playing a single woman making her living as a stay-at-home typist; she marries much-younger Cliff Robertson, a pathological liar, and quickly discovers the many secrets he has in his murky past. Florid melodrama is filled with fruity dialogue and overheated set-ups (like the infamous thrown typewriter), fluttering hands and fluttering eyelashes. A trashy delight, and sure to please soap buffs. *** from ****
