  • El Biffo's rating of the film Lady in the Death House

    Lacking in any redeeming value whatsoever. It is quite obvious someone came up with the idea, what if a woman's fiancee is the executioner at the state penitentiary, and his bride-to-be gets falsely sent up for murder and he has to pull the switch on her. It is the execution of this scenario that I am condemning, and would that crappy films like this could be put to death, instead of being late-nite fodder on TCM.
