I really enjoyed this classic film....
One of Anthony Mann's earlier efforts, and not one of his better known film noirs, this is, if nothing else, a movie that has a good enough sense of humor to bask in its own strangeness. It has a wonderful lead actress in Brenda Marshall, a beautiful screen presence and one who doesn't mind getting a little weird. The plot involves a twisted love triangle in which a jealous lab assistant gets in the way of a brilliant chemist, Nora Goodrich (Marshall), and her fiance by sabotaging an experiment. When the experiment goes wrong after Nora uses herself as a test subject, she becomes horribly disfigured. Then she becomes unwillingly involved in a murder, whose victim is mistaken for Nora, she flees to Los Angeles to undergo plastic surgery. With a whole new face, she goes back to try to discover the truth behind her horrible fate. Yeah, it's a weird story, and it works in spite of itself most of the time. Mann's lively direction is apparent even in this early, crude feature; he lights and frames his subjects wonderfully and spends equal time on their beauty and their ugliness. It is clear that this is an A-list director who just hasn't gotten the chance to break away from B-movies yet. Most viewers will roll their eyes at the ending of the picture, which looks now contrived and overdone, but I find that it works for the movie in a hokey kind of way.
Bizarre and masterfully done schlock.
Ludicrous story with questionable ideas about gender roles and a lame cop-out ending... but deliciously fun nonetheless. You've gotta love a movie with a tagline like "Hell hath no fury as a woman scalded by acid"! A really twisted revenge thriller/soap opera that plays out a bit like an extended "Twilight Zone" episode. Anthony Mann's noir chops are undeniable, and although this one isn't exactly noir, it pushes all the right buttons. I had my doubts going into it, but it turned out to be a really good time. Just ignore the last two minutes (although they do make the plot's implausibilities more palatable).
SpÃ¤nnande och rÃ¤tt mÃ¤rklig historia om hÃ¤mnd och svartsjuka. En kvinnlig forskare byter identitet med en utpressare fÃ¶r att hÃ¤mnas pÃ¥ en rival som van stÃ¤llt hennes ansikte vid ett experiment fÃ¶r att komma emellan forskaren och hennes blivande man. Tappar vÃ¤ldigt mycket pÃ¥ ett dÃ¥ligt slut.
Terrific B-Thriller from the great Anthony Mann about chemist Nora Goodrich (Brenda Marshall) seeking revenge on her jealous assistant who sabotaged an experiment which left Goodrich's face severely scarred.
Noteworthy film in that the leads are female rather than the typical male stars, which makes the film much more effective in the long run.
The ending may seem a bit contrived but thinking about it in the context of the film that preceded it, it makes perfect sense.
Oh yes, this is tasty.
Eccentric but effective film noir with a clever power-play between 3 women. A Repiblic Pictures 68 minute quickie from director Anthony Mann.
The setup for this B movie is great and "Twilight Zone"-esque; you just have to forget that the last scene exists.
Nifty little plot twister.
