Wonderful
15 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Could only wish there was just one more film of this quality out there. This is the only "keeper" I own.

The scene with Annette Haven & Wade Nichols is shot with the greatest lighting of any I've ever come across.

Goofy opening should not sway you, stay with it... more wonderful as it goes along.

'20 era in b&w is shadowed in a amber that give a nice effect. '30's has beautiful girls. '40's teeny bopper is smoldering.(+ the A.H.& W.N. scene) '50s is fun & sexy. '60s is over done just a little. '70s makes you wish you could go back....
