Audience Reviews for The Strange Woman

  • Jun 11, 2018
    Edgar G. Ulmer directs this unusual cautionary tale about what can happen should a beautiful girl grow up without a mother = she can become a shrewd and evil manipulator of men. Hedy Lemarr is great as a bad, bad " I don't want to be bad" woman in this dark tale, aided by a steady George Sanders as a "good" guy (for a change). Louis Hayward and Gene Lockhart are a surprise too, all given a chance to shine outside of the typical formulaic Hollywood roles usually assigned them, to stretch and play characters totally different than the cash cow cliches Hollywood endorsed. An interesting watch.

    This Film I obtained from the Mill Creek Dark Crimes Collection. Directed by Edgar G Ulmer and at times I could see some Hitchcock influence in this movie, Women haven't changed much since 1946 as this one schemes to get everything she wants, including any man no matter if she's married or not. All about cheating and where it leads to. A film way ahead of its time in 1946. Video quality could have been better, you might be able to see this through internet archives. 3 1/2 stars 3-14-13

    If you can put aside the fact that the lead character has a viennese accent and her father an irish one when they are both natives of Bangor, Maine then there is much to enjoy here. Hedy, stunningly beautiful as always, plays a deeply conflicted woman well and though the film veers wildly from morality tale to lurid melodrama it is certainly more fun than a lot of more highly thought of films.
