Sean Burns Crooked Marquee Adventurous and exciting in ways missing from other movies made by more stable individuals. Jan 14, 2022 Full Review Virginia Graham The Spectator I should like to yawn in its face, but I must commend to you Mr. Vincent Price who, as a ham film star on vacation, is, when translating his braggadocio screen roles into real life, intensely funny. Jun 19, 2018 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Price's role was priceless as the conceited thespian quoting Shakespeare during perilous moments. Rated: B+ Dec 17, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Fine but nothing you havn't seen before. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/24 Full Review j f Vincent Price pretty hilarious. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/24 Full Review Matthew D Vincent Peice steals the show! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/04/21 Full Review Tom M Another great Mitchum noir, albeit atypical in that Price provides an over-the-top comedic performance that is so camp yet perfect for the story. While Russell has chemistry with Mitchum, her character is included simply to enhance the movie poster. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/21 Full Review Audience Member I wish Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell had made more movies together. Their chemistry almost melts the celluloid. This film, though, is more memorable for the absolute trippy performance by Vincent Price and an equally phantasmagoric third act. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I love Vincent Price in this. playingcharacter Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
