Title: The Spoilers (1955)
Post by: titoli on January 03, 2010, 03:22:51 PM
I saw an earlier (1942) and more famous version of this 2 or 3 months ago and comparison doesn't detract from this later one. Sure, the arlier one has all the stars, but this one got good colour, locations and sets. It also has a very good pacing which never abates. The actors are good but Anne Baxter just doesn't fit the part: she is not a femme fatale or just pretty. 7\10
