Better done in the '50's.
6 December 1998 | by SludgySee all my reviews

This turgid, badly directed film is of a genre which was done so much better in the 1940's and '50's that you must ask: "Why did they bother?" It must have cost the usual millions - they would have done much more good if they had given to the Society for the Support of One Winged Butterflies or something. Boring.
