STRANGE MELODRAMA WITH THE BEAUTIFUL NELIDA LOBATO!, 17 September 2004
Author: shepardjessica from sparks, nevada

This mid-60's potboiler has some interesting scenes and SOME of the dialogue is great. The best thing about this flick is the presence of the incredible Ms. Lobato (whose husband directed it). She's a gorgeous creature who's great when she's angry or in a bikini. The ending was quite a surprise. A 5 out of 10.

Best performance = Ms. Lobato. The dopey good-guy husband is well-cast and the cinematography by Ray Steckler is great. All of the attorney scenes are a bore-fest. Interesting musical score. But Nelida Lobato makes it all worthwhile. I wish she'd made more films. Apparently she was a singer as well.
