I very much enjoyed the film, its pretty much because its written very well, its casts are great, the story, well its the kind that keeps you guessing til the end, so I liked it very much..Plus, probably this movie is what inspired 'desperate housewives'..It was worth to watch.
The direction is absolutely unspectacular and at times extremely silly. That said, the script was quite excellent in many areas. The structure, which zigzags between past and present, is perfect for this tale. The themes of social status and devotion are also never over done and, at times, are masterfully intertwined with one another. In short, if you like old Hollywood melodrama, this one is well worth watch.
"Worry," says the radio.
"Will your best friends not tell you?
"Will you lose your teeth?
Will your cigarettes give you cancer?
"Will your body function
after you're 35?
"If you don't use our product,
you lose your husband, your job and die!
Use our product and we'll make you rich,
we'll make you famous!"
Lora May is the deification of Linda Darnell. She and Paul Douglas are perfect together, as good as Jean Harlow and Wallace Beery in "Dinner At Eight." In some ways, this is a better movie than "All About Eve."
Es la carta que genera el conflicto interno de tres mujeres distintas, cada una víctima de sus propios prejucios, dilemas laborales o sentimentales. Curiosamente el personaje principal de esta historia nunca aparece. Ella será la razón de la tensión. Es la mujer que siempre está ausente, pero está también omnipresente, hostigando, creando discordias o conclusiones apresuradas.
