Last movie of Hedy Lamarr who retired at the age of 44. 'The Female Animal' is a lot better than its title would suggest. Men and more specifically young handsome men with muscles are seen as preys for the three leading ladies here. Jane Powell plays the alcoholic daughter of Hedy Lamarr, a Hollywood star, and Jan Sterling is a retired actress with cash in the bank. Lines of dialogue are quite acute. Recommended.
