Great underrated film. Mayo and Davison are terrific...
17 September 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Unusual flashback film with lead characters playing dual roles. Virginia Mayo gives one of her best latter-day performances. An underrated film and a greatly underrated actress. Tongue-in-cheek melodrama mixes "Pretty Baby" plot with "French Lieutenant's Woman" structure, but actually predates both.
