It is only the heavies, Vincent Price and Charles Laughton, who keep the film dripping with venom.

Audience Reviews for The Bribe

Great cast in good crime drama. Ava is gorgeous and sultry, Taylor a little less stiff than usual but this belongs to Charles Laughton and to a lesser extent Vincent Price as the villains. Good old fashioned film making.

I loved seeing Price as the bad guy in this movie, he seems so nice and unassuming in the beginning that you think he's just an innocent bystander, but things quickly turn dark. Gardner is beautiful, and gives a magnificent performance as the wife that the detective falls in love with. The rest of the cast is great too. But what I didn't like about it was that annoying voice over for most of the movie, it was unnecessary. Plus the story is slightly confusing for the most part, but in the end I understood enough to like the movie.
