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.
