Katherine Blake - A bloody good looking woman, 26 September 2015
Author: howardmorley from United Kingdom

Katherine Blake - I could not take my eyes off this dark raven haired beauty and readers of my reviews will have noticed I am attracted to this type of actress, viz:Jennifer Jones,Gene Tierney, Vivien Leigh, Ava Gardner, Jean Simmons etc.It may be they all have wonderfully sculpted faces with incredible cheekbones but I do like this dark Latin type of look.The previous reviewer has done a good job so I don't see the point of reiterating the plot.In my case I thought "Double Indemnity" was a closer fit rather than "Laura" both from (1944).

In my review of the first episode of "Riviera Police" (1965) which was "Catch a Falling Star".I believe Katherine Blake appeared along with another siren one Christa Nelli as she was dubbed then.The subject film had a very un-pockmarked face of Ray Barrett who would later achieve fame in the TV series "The Troubleshooters" when he looked then as if a swarm of locusts had attacked his face.Perhaps that was in his native Australia.My User rating? 7/10, it was good and held my interest to the last reel.
