Douglas Sirk United States, 1947

SpacePirate's rating of the film Lured

A very serviceable little murder mystery with some noir touches. Starts out excellent. Sanders is his usual suave ladykiller self, Ball excels given some good zingers that foreshadow her 50s success, Coburn provides his usual solid support, and Karloff makes one hell of a cameo. Unfortunately, the last 1/2 hr is quite heavy handed and dull, preventing this one from reaching classic status. For what it is, 3-3.5 stars
