Critics reviews

A film that showcases Lupino’s talents as screen actor, singer, writer, and producer, and in other ways might shed light on her abilities as a composer and director. If it isn’t the ultimate Lupino film – I’d say there’d be at least a few of those – it certainly comes close.

Lupino played top-billed support as a greedy nightclub singer and co-wrote with Young, but sourced out direction to Don Siegel, who felt an outsider to the “family” and their vodka-fuelled production mode. Also, the murky material didn’t fit Siegel’s clean, efficient style, producing both abrasive curiosity and another box-office disappointment, despite the film’s desperate 1958 re-release as Baby Face Killers.
