The wife of a traveling salesman is tired of being wrapped in her old cloth coat while all her friends seem to be draped in fur. It's not just that she feels frumpy and outshone, it's that it makes her husband look unsuccessful and is bad for him in his position, she argues. Then she hears about a secondhand mink that's not only beautiful but available at a price that's a real steal. Written by Morganalee

Good First Half
3 February 2016 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Mink wraps of any kind were a big status symbol in the upwardly mobile 1950's. No wonder Paula (Hussey) wants one, in this case, a mink stole. So, she buys one, and now she and hubby can show off to their peers. Trouble is her stole turns out to be stolen, at least that what the cops say. But Paula certainly looks the respectable suburban housewife. Nonetheless, the people she claims put her on to the good deal now claim never to have seen her. Oh my, so who's telling the truth. Certainly a trip to the slammer won't do her respectable standing any good.

The first half really holds interest as we wonder what the real story is. But once we're tipped off, the narrative fades into a kind of tepid resolution. Too bad the second half doesn't really keep up the interest of the first. Hussey's fine in the lead role, and I can't help thinking she resembles Lucille Ball's Lucy Ricardo in some of the shots. Maybe it's also the similar period fashions, especially the hair-do. Anyway, the entry's an okay time passer, but nothing special.
