Critic Reviews for Scent of Mystery

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

As theatrical exhibitionism, it is gaudy, sprawling and full of sound. But as an attempt at a considerable motion picture it has to be classified as bunk.

The picture -- with or without the smells -- is a fun picture, expertly directed by Jack Cardiff.

This beautifully photographed mystery/chase film takes its cast through the Spanish landscape, but the real star of the picture is "Smell-O-Vision."
