Carol Lynley with Horns
22 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember Carol Lynley from a "shocking" teenage movie in the early sixties. It was called "Blue Denim" and also starred the ill fated Brandon de Wilde, in one of his last performances. She is a rather innocent girl who finds herself pregnant. We feel great empathy for the two of them. In this film, she is the opposite. While she looks the same, she is a true vamp. She lives with an aunt who has taken her in and she is bored with every part of her life, which leads to cruelty to everyone she encounters, most noticeably her doting boyfriend. She moans on and on about how awful things are for her. One night she finds the worldly Tex (Vincent Edwards, probably around the time Ben Casey was going into production. She plays with his feelings, even though he is ultra-suspicious of her. Her acting absolutely steals the entire episode. Facially, she employs every nuance possible. She went on the a substantial career, including a more matronly effort on Twin Peaks. The episode is typical Hitchcock Presents, but see it to watch Carol Lynley.
