Slow pace, poor script does Hedy Lamarr injustice
This was a very tough film to digest. The first half moved at a pace slower than a tortoise. It's a shame that this is the way Hedy Lamarr went out because she deserved much better than this. George Nader was not a good match in my opinion. The worst part might have been the attempted recreation of the From Here to Eternity scene on the beach. Another missed opportunity for Powell, who also deserved a better script and role at this point in her career.
