Certainly the weakest of director Delmer Daves' high-gloss 1960s romances.

Audience Reviews for Susan Slade


Florid and overripe is too mild a description for this potboiler. The sets and photography are beautiful but the story is pure corn. And what a cast! Connie Stevens was never much of an actress but up against Troy Donahue and Bert Convy she seems like Vanessa Redgrave. The supporting cast is full of familiar faces, Lovey Howell is Bert's mother!, and they aquit themselves as well as they can given the tripe they're handed. If your in the mood for an over the top melodrama look no further.
