At least you have to give this one a chance for sheer watchability since LANA TURNER keeps turning up in one great costume after another, proving that even in her forties she was still a glamor girl. The story is trash--as are the main characters--so if you get any thrill out of watching the bronzed bodies enjoying themselves in a potboiler you can call it a guilty pleasure.
Turner is as fickle as they come. Although married to handsome CLIFF ROBERTSON, she's always on the lookout for another gigolo to keep her love life perking. She pays the most attention to HUGH O'BRIAN, who sports a series of brief beach outfits to demonstrate his hunk appeal while he flirts with all the wealthy females on the beach.
If you're still watching, the story leads to a climactic bull fight at a Mexican arena and by that time all the clichés have been thoroughly trampled upon by a ludicrous script and some bad direction.
For Turner's fans, however, it's worth watching for Lana alone. She's lovingly (and carefully) photographed and shows why she was the "it" girl of her generation.
