Movie Reviews

Great performance of Jayne in a Terence Young movie !
Michelle De Ville | Laurentians,Quebec | 06/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For years i was trying to get to see this film.
When I finally found it last year,i was pleasantly surprised.
Jayne offers a serious performance that i found very credible.Even her voice is lower in it's tone,and the numbers when she sings give us an idea of what her Las Vegas shows must have been like(she was the highest paid performer,at 35,000 $ a week !).God knows that Jayne was not offered many serious roles in her film career,but i would say that this one qualifies as a serious one.
The film is directed by Terence Young,and even if the production values are done with a small budget,it is well-paced,with a real story giving us a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes of a stripper in the late 50's.
The serious side of Jayne's performance made me think about her last movie,'Single Room Furnished',which made me sad.
Conclusion:Don't dismiss this film as a 'Bomb' or El-cheapo trashy film,it is not.
Trivia (found of Jayne's site):One of the reason why the film was shot in black and white,had to do with how revealing one of Jayne's costume was(the one you see on the cover)"
