      Terry Staunton Radio Times Director Ken Hughes packs a lot of incident into a reasonably short running time, and the narrative works well as a feminist revenge allegory. Rated: 3/5 Jun 22, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A lethargic and unaffecting minor film noir. Rated: C Oct 22, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D It has been done so much better. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review Tom M Great noire. Arlene Dahl is perfect in the titular role. She ruthlessly climbs the social ladder one man at a time. It's believable because is Dahl has never been more beautiful than in this film. Philip Carey is very good as the only man who sees through her. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/29/20 Full Review Jessica C It wasn't bad but it certainly wasn't great either. It overall felt like too much and too forced to make her a stunning, strong lead. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/09/20 Full Review Audience Member Will pass some time on rainy sunday afternoon, think Blobbo. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
