nick s The main actors put in a good performance, but the support actors were quite stagey. The relationships moved too fast and the story was contrived. It rounded off abruptly with a feeble ending. So the movie was probably good for it's time but doesn't stand up today. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Audience Member Great cast, well acted. Interesting mystery, Well written. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member hi sex i love sexy woman big boob Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Woman in the Shadows (aka "Woman in the Dark") Starring: Ralph Bellamy, Fay Wray, and Melvyn Douglas Director: Phil Rosen Fresh from serving a prison term for manslaughter, John Bradley (Bellamy) finds himself on the run from the law after coming to the defense of a woman (Wray) fleeing her possessive boyfriend (Douglas). "Woman in the Shadows" is a decent little "innocent man on the run" crme drama with a good script and equally good performances by the three stars and most of the supporting cast. (The comic relief character is more annoying than funny, but that may only partially be the actor's fault.) This film is nothing spectacular, and the characters and storyline are what you expect at every turn, but it's nonetheless a fast-paced, solid bit of entertaiment. It's like a 1930s version of an average summer-time action movie or drama. Nothing's truly going to surprise you, but if it's well-made, you have a good time anyway. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
