There's too much unintended mystery about A Woman's Secret for it to be anything but spotty entertainment.
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.
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.
| Original Score: C
It is hard to believe that a film directed by Ray and written by Mankiewicz could be anything less than brilliant.
| Original Score: 2/4
Entertaining, and less routine than it sounds.
The tidied up gem of a mess still gives off an awful stink.
| Original Score: B-
An early gem from Ray, who would undoubtedly go on to greater things, but who, at the very least, shows promise here.
