Spotlight on the ladies
25 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

An fine example of the sort of film that isn't made anymore. Studio engineered vehicle to spotlight a crop of its newest and most promising contract players.

The men are more or less disposable and none had careers of much distinction, though John Gavin had a good run of leads in the late 50's/early 60's. Too bad he was such a mechanical actor he certainly had the looks of a leading man.

Likewise none of the ladies ever made it to major stardom but all reached some level of renown in their native countries and all four are incredibly beautiful. The lone American, Julie Adams in particular had a very successful 60 year long career as a respected performer. Martinelli had a brief Hollywood run and a decent career in Italy as did Koch once she returned to Germany. Even the ill-fated but exquisite Gia Scala had some memorable roles before her personal problems ruined her career and life.

Here they all get their moment to shine in a story that was probably old hat in silents, the plucky actresses who have to compete for a crack at the big time. It's lush, plush and pretty empty with some outdated 50's sensibilities but if you like films made with exceptional care with that old studio sheen this is one worthy checking out.
