2.6 A number of weird ingredients here: the talentless Ekberg and her silly "erotic" dance, an attack in an open air shower done without any sense of suspense, a wide range of unpleasant male characters and a silly conclusion that is - at the same time - expected and incomprehensible. Somehow, the energetic direction holds up the interest, nevertheless. Strange.
Bizarre is the word. And this late noir psycho-drama is pulp novel at its best: an improbable twisted story, a strip joint with sexy dance numbers and jazz, Gypsy Rose Lee, and of course, Anita Ekberg doing straight acting more or less successfully. She may have managed, if Oswald didn't persist in framing her down to her boobs. So whatever dramatic scene she has, that's what we all see. Enjoyable all the same!
