A B-Film Done A-Style
16 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This light Hollywood drama begins with a world-wide search for an actress to play the title role in an upcoming epic "The Story of Esther", since Manning Studios is having issues with their temperamental star Rita Holloway (Helene Stanton). Four are finally chosen: an Austrian(Marianne Koch), an Italian (Elsa Martinelli), a Frenchwoman (GiaScala) and an American (Julie Adams), all brunette beauties. There's some fascinating backstage, back-lot sequences, all shot on the Universal-International sets. A couple of shots of Adams in "Esther"wardrobe reveals her breathtaking beauty: Statuesque, jut-jawed with high cheekbones, lustrous dark hair, and stunning eyes. There's also an unexpected denouement at the end. The conventional plot line receives tremendous boost by being photographed in color and Cinemascope (although I haven't seen it in widescreen). The day and night beach scenes are striking and the music by Alex North is interesting. But at the end the four women don't seem complete, 1950s style, unless they get their man.
