Social drama and great performance!
17 February 2002 | by Artemis-9See all my reviews

It is a pity that with badly edited bootleg copies, you no longer can enjoy to the full with the witty social criticism, and the psychological analysis of the characters as the original movie was intended to. Even a poor version (I got mine from the WWW as "Dog Eat Dog") you should not miss Jayne's great performance. She was not under the best directors, the richest producers, with the best casts Hollywood could afford - but she was a major personality, and she shows it everywhere: namely here, in this little, wonderful film - dark, so dark, as Jayne's life was going to be. Notable also for Jayne's only fight scene on a boat, and on the seashore, trying to escape a no-escape island.
