Critic Reviews for A Woman's Secret

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

There's too much unintended mystery about A Woman's Secret for it to be anything but spotty entertainment.

Top Critic

Entertaining, and less routine than it sounds.

Top Critic

Nicholas Ray directed it, though his touch is apparent only in the handling of the unstable Grahame character; otherwise, it's probably his stodgiest, driest piece of work.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

One of the few really weak films in Nicholas Ray's otherwise brilliant career. Even the acting is not very good, compared to In a Lonely Place, in which Ray's then wife-actress Gloria Grahame also stars.

Full Review… | March 8, 2011

The tidied up gem of a mess still gives off an awful stink.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It is hard to believe that a film directed by Ray and written by Mankiewicz could be anything less than brilliant.

Audience Reviews for A Woman's Secret

Without Gloria Grahame this would be a routine potboiler but it does have her and she is a saucy scheming delight that lifts the film up several notches.
