3.0 out of 5 stars NICHOLAS RAY, OPUS 2 March 9, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
*** 1949. Directed by Nicholas Ray. A WOMAN'S SECRET's screenplay was an adaptation of Vicki Baum's Mortgage On Life written by Herman J. Mankiewicz. Maureen O'Hara confesses to the police that she's just shot Gloria Grahame but neither his friends neither Police Insp. Jim Fowler believe her. Nicholas Ray's second film is not as good as his first one THEY LIVE BY NIGHT They Live by Night / Side Street (Film Noir Double Feature) but is still enjoyable. The most interesting idea of the film, apart of the flashback building, is the way Maureen O'Hara describes herself as Gloria Grahame's double. She lives through Gloria -Estrellita- Grahame since the day she lost her voice. Unsettling. If you own a multi zone DVD player, you can buy a DVD zone 2 of this film at

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting December 12, 2011
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I purcased the video for the song, "Paradise," that Gloria Graham sings in her audition. This the most erotic rendition I've ever heard of this wonderful ol' tune.

The film is pedestrain, at best. Its premise is inchoherent and is never explained. Addditionallly, there other semi-major coherent lapses.

Nonetheless, it's a pleasure to see Gloria Graham and Murine O'Hara working together.
