Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Little more than a competently acted and shot costume drama, it is neither a film of the ages or for the ages; it is a film that has, however, aged, and poorly.

Audience Reviews for The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing

½

They had me at the Red Velvet Swing in the Penthouse Conservatory!!!! I STILL love to swing!!!! This is a beautiful Unrequited Love Story that goes horribly wrong when she marries a mentally unstable, jealous man just to get over the one she really loves & cannot morally have in 1906.What we do to escape love!!!! Her jealous & cruel hubby eventually kills the man she really loves.Joan Collins gives Liz Taylor a run for her Beauty in this Movie is one of my Favorites because it has one of the best endings I have ever loved, I am having a very tough time not spoiling it for you.
