Audience Reviews for The Sign of the Ram

Excellent performance from the ill fated Susan Peters is the centerpiece of this dark tale of a woman so consumed by insecurity and bitterness that she tries to destroy all around her. The actress crippled in real life after a terrible shooting accident tried to return to what had been a promising screen career with this film but it proved to be her last. Racked by almost constant pain she died four years later from complications and anorexia.
