Terrible acting and terrible script and terrible sets
11 October 2018 | by nikicooperSee all my reviews

This is a terrible film. Carol Lynley is painful to watch, her attempt at a suductress consists of leaning on walls and rolling her eyes. Martha Hyer is past her prime, looks bad, wears bad clothes and wigs. Paul Burke is the one bright spot.
