Critic Reviews for The Second Woman
Audience Reviews for The Second Woman
Solid little pyschological drama. Taking into account that the view of the mind and it's workings has changed since this was made it's still an entertaining film. Young is fine in the lead and the supporting cast is strong, it would have benefitted from a more forceful leading lady. Betsy Drake isn't bad she just doesn't possess a potent screen persona that compels you to watch her like Gloria Grahame or Lauren Bacall did.
Fascinating story, wonderfully acted by Betsy Drake. Solid mystery that really draws you into the story. Good sets, nice costumes and score. What a cool house!
Good psychological thriller about a man who thinks he being driven insane... or is he really just crazy? The mystery is clever and complex and keeps the viewer guessing until the end, with a nice little twist the cap off the film. Performance from Young is good but the acting of his supporting cast wavers and the direction is somewhat un-involving, but the plot itself will keep you intrigued.
