Critic Reviews for Screaming Mimi
... a real cult item in the film noir filmography, weird and lurid and kitschy, but fascinating all the same.
The movie is discreet by modern standards, but 'Screaming Mimi' has so much sex on the brain the characters almost leak.
Audience Reviews for Screaming Mimi
Hooty low budget affair isn't too hard to figure out but has the attractions of a stunning Anita Ekberg and one of the rare appearances of Gypsy Rose Lee.
a real cult item in the film noir filmography, weird and lurid and kitschy, but fascinating all the same.
Inept mystery yarn with Anita Ekberg as a bonus for male viewers. Richard W. Nason, film critic for The New York Times, wrote, "It is a modern case of an artist's unintended voodoo over a girl who undergoes a traumatic experience. It is an effective film of its kind, thanks to some reflective dialogue by Robert Blees and a sense of suspense on the part of Gerd Oswald, the director. Anita Ekberg, who does more acting here than before, is the star. Gypsy Rose Lee and Phil Carey are also on the ball." She is a dancer who thinks she's committed murder. No, the script is murder. Cast Anita Ekberg as Virginia Wilson aka Yolanda Lange Philip Carey as Bill Sweeney Gypsy Rose Lee as Joann "Gypsy" Mapes Harry Townes as Dr. Greenwood aka Green Linda Cherney as Ketti Romney Brent as Charlie Weston Alan Gifford as Captain Bline Oliver McGowan as Walter Krieg Red Norvo as Red Yost Red Norvo Trio as Musical Ensemble Directed by Gerd Oswald Produced by Harry Joe Brown Robert Fellows Written by Story: Fredric Brown Screenplay: Robert Blees Music by Mischa Bakaleinikoff Cinematography Burnett Guffey Editing by Gene Havlick Jerome Thoms Distributed by Columbia Pictures Release date(s) June 25, 1958 Running time 79 minutes
