See it for Diana Dors ! She's a mix of Marilyn Monroe and Gloria Grahame. The rest of the film is rather unadventurous, the scenes that could have been interesting like the death of George Brent's wife happening off-screen. Nonetheless, the Terence Fisher's touch could be felt once in Man Bait, when George Brent, at the end of the film, looks through the shelves of a bookcase. Reserved to hardcore Hammer Films fans.
