a strange melodrama in Cinemascope
6 December 2007 | by (Braintree, MA) – See all my reviews

A low budget B-picture worth a look for melodrama and noir fans, if nothing particularly sensational.

Sort of a FARMHAND ALWAYS RINGS TWICE tale which never completely rises above its fairly predictable storyline, but the use of black and white Cinemascope, and its rapid pace and decent performances, make it noteworthy. Vera Ralston is quite good in particular, and a very unlikely "siren" for a role such as this.

A strange energy definitely pervades throughout; there's touches of true sleaze, especially in the performance by Leo Gordon of the "other man", Chip Klamp (!).
