Versuchung auf 809 Regie Roy Ward Baker


Set entirely in a Manhattan hotel, Don’t Bother to Knock is full of small surprises, starting with the perfectly executed transition that Anne Bancroft, in her film debut as chanteuse Lyn Lesley, makes from her barstool: With just a turn, she segues from lamenting her love life with the mixologist to dazzling as the hotel’s featured entertainer, launching into “How About You?”
