Dorothy's last movie
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dorothy finished up her film career with this great film about two drifters trying to find a jewel thief who has wronged them, Dorothy is very effective playing this world weary woman, because she herself was weary in her own life, she plays the part with no make-up and a not so becoming wig, but manages to look breath-taking none the less, i think her character Gianna is the best she ever played, even more than Carmen because the line between fact and fiction blurred in this, the rest of cast is also effective, Dorothy and Trevor worked well together, and should have been paired in another film.this is a hard to find film, but worth it to see Dorothy in her last film role.
