Douglas Sirk United States, 1947

Scotch's rating of the film Lured

I finally get why Lucille Ball is so great, but I was also disappointed with dear Douglas' early serial killer murder mystery romance comedy (I should have known!). What a bore of a last 45 minutes and boy did Lucille's character transform from a witty secret agent to a helpless damsel. If anyone remakes this, just do a series of Craigslist hook-up seekers like ole Boris Karloff's madman fashion queen.
