Editorial Reviews

The first title on the double bill is one of the rare instances where "B" film director Ulmer was given a grade "A" cast to work with... and he doesn't disappoint. In The Strange Woman, screen vixen Lamarr gives one of her finest performances as a strong-willed young lady in 19th-Century Maine, who affects the lives of three very different men. In the second feature, Dishonored Lady, a taut little thriller, Lamarr plays a glamorous but neurotic art director for a leading women's magazine who finds herself under suspicion of murder. Bonus Features: Scene Selection| Trailers| Short Subject - "Made In USA." Specs: DVD9; Dolby Digital Mono; 182 minutes; B&W; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA - NR; Year - 1946-1947; SRP - $4.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lusty Lamarr in two wonderful classics! February 20, 2005
By Dave
This is another of those fabulous bargain-priced ACME dvds, and in this one you get two awesome Hedy Lamarr classics. Lamarr was one of the most beautiful and underated actresses of her time and she never gave a bad performance.

First we have Robert Stevenson's classic semi-noir "Dishonored Lady", which has Lamarr playing a troubled woman who's drawn to men in the same way they're drawn to her: lust. But when she meets Dennis O'Keefe she finds out what true love is like, and she tries to change her ways. When an old "flame" of hers turns up murdered, however, she is the only suspect. Lamarr is then on trial for 1st degree murder, while O'Keefe is heartbroken learning about her troubled past and affairs with men. Will they find the real murderer, and will O'Keefe forgive Lamarr for decieving him? Watch and find out! By the way, Lamarr was married to co-star John Loder at the time this movie was made.

Next, we have Edgar G. Ulmer's classic "Strange Woman", which has one of Lamarr's greatest (if not THE greatest) performances of her entire career. She plays a seductive woman (to perfection) who goes after one man after another in a small, 19th-century Maine town. After she makes the mistake of marrying an old man, she even seduces the man's son (that's right, her step-son!). When she finally meets the right man (George Sanders), her troubled past comes back to haunt her. The best way I can describe this awesome classic is a 19th-century version of Peyton Place! Edgar G. Ulmer was legendary for making great movies on shoestring budgets, but this was a rare chance for him to have a grade "A" cast, and he used it to perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a Note On DVD Quality December 3, 2004
By Anita
"Acme" is the Double Feature division of "VCI/fi" and I've always had good luck with VCI releases so I took a chance.

DISHONORED LADY: This is a wonderful film in which Hedy displays a range of emotions including tipsy. She is a good actress and is totally gorgeous as a NYC "modern woman" with a promiscuity problem, she's a "user" and hangs out with other "users", she becomes despondent. Through the provedential intervention of a wise shrink, one wonders if she will overcome it and find true happiness as a simple doctor's wife -- or revert to life as a well-paid, hi-fashion magazine editor. She is also involved in a murder investigation and suspicions turn her way. Watch for Margaret Hamilton. The Story is a "5" Picture quality is about a "4" its not perfect but completely watchable and enjoyable, the night scenes are a little dark, but all others have good contrast with no noticable artifacts or blotches. The sound is very good, its even & steady and when you turn the volume up it does'nt hiss. The VCI Double Feature disc is a real bargain just for this movie alone, BUT look you also have---

STRANGE WOMAN: This stars Hedy Lamarr as well as George Sanders, Louis Hayward, Gene Lockhart, Hillary Brooke, Rhys Williams, June Story, Moroni Olsen, Olive Blakeney, Kathleen Lockhart, Alan Napier, Dennis Hoey. The plot begins in Bangor Main in 1824 with Jennie Hagar as a child of about 8 at a swimming hole with some other childern all speaking with California accents. Then the next scene is of Jennie played by Hedy with a foreign accent, noticably missing in the whole town is Main accents, but then this is the charm of old movies. Hedy plays a manipulative temptress who marries a much older man out of need. She plays a range of emotions in this drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hedy Lamarr's best performance. Check it out! December 1, 2005
By yaremar
Hedy Lamarr is frequently referred to as the most beautiful movie star of her era, and I'll certainly go along with that assessment. Yet she has rarely been given enough credit for her acting ability, and is usually dismissed as a limited actress. True, Hedy can't exactly be ranked alongside Bette Davis or Ida Lupino, but she still had a magnetic screen presence and could turn in a fine performance when given the opportunity. Many claim she gave one of her finest performances in THE STRANGE WOMAN (1946). I'd go so far as to say it's her all-time best.

In this melodrama set in 19th century Maine, Hedy (with an accent that hardly sounds like anyone from Maine) plays Jenny Hager, a self-aborbed young woman whose outward beauty belies a background of poverty and abuse. Jenny uses her alluring charms to attract the attention of Isaiah Poster (Gene Lockhart), an elderly merchant. After marrying Isaiah, Jenny seduces her weak-willed stepson Ephraim (Louis Hayward), which sets the stage for a tragic turn of events between father and son. Jenny later sets her sights on John Evered (George Sanders), who is engaged to one of Jenny's so-called close friends (Hillary Brooke). But even the cunning Jenny can't escape the cumulative effects of her past deeds.

While Hedy was excellent in films like H. M. PULHAM, ESQ. (1941), EXPERIMENT PERILOUS (1944), and SAMSON AND DELILAH (1949), I don't think she ever had a better showcase than THE STRANGE WOMAN. Her portrayal of Jenny Hager is more complex than a simple plot synopsis would indicate. Jenny is heartless in her manipulation of men, and ruthless in her drive to acquire wealth and prestige. And yet she can't shake the memories of her impoverished childhood; once she becomes rich, she uses her influence to help the downtrodden.

Seems like a lot of beginners in their first or only movie. Plots were thin and they added a lot of local music "talent" as fillers to stretch it out. Read more
