Author: Meredith Taylor

Dir: Jim O’Connolly | Cast: Joan Crawford, Diana Dors, Ty Hardin, Robert Hardy, Michael Gough | US Drama 97’

If you didn’t think that Joan Crawford could sink any lower than William Castle see what happened when he fell into the clammy embrace of Herman Cohen.

Crawford obviously wasn’t bothered about the quality of the script as long as she got the star treatment (the fabulous outfits she wears were probably the biggest part of the budget; I wonder if she was allowed to keep them?).

Crawford is a woman after Cohen’s own heart playing a queen bee who thinks the deaths are good for business lusts after Ty Hardin and still looks fabulous in tights, as do Diana Dors and Judy Geeson (we even get to see Dors wrestle Marianne Stone).

The ludicrous ending comes as no surprise to anyone who seen Crawford’s earlier film ‘Strait-Jacket. @RichardChatten
