Audience Reviews for The Second Woman


Solid little pyschological drama. Taking into account that the view of the mind and it's workings has changed since this was made it's still an entertaining film. Young is fine in the lead and the supporting cast is strong, it would have benefitted from a more forceful leading lady. Betsy Drake isn't bad she just doesn't possess a potent screen persona that compels you to watch her like Gloria Grahame or Lauren Bacall did.
