3.0 out of 5 stars One Bad Movie May 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
I won't even pretend that this is a good movie. THREE BAD SISTERS was released in 1956, when I was still a young boy. I couldn't go to see it because it had been condemned by the Legion of Decency. I had to wait more than 50 years to see it. I went to the TCM website and requested it. Much to my surprise, there it was in the listings within a few weeks. Thanks, TCM.

After having seen this movie, I have no idea why the Legion condemned it in the first place.

THREE BAD SISTERS starred Marla English, Kathleen Hughes and Sarah Shane as the sisters with John Bromfield as, dare I say it, the bone of contention. The supporting cast included Lex Barker (one of the Tarzans) and Madge Kennedy as a boozy old harpy of an aunt.

Brunette Marla English (The She Creature) was my favorite pin-up of the era. She plays a sluttish man-trap named Vickie and gets to deliver all the suggestive dialogue. (There's no sex in the movie). Marla is my main reason for purchasing this movie. She had a short career and this movie displays her talents to her best advantage.

Blonde Kathleen Hughes plays Valerie and is made up to look like Marilyn Monroe. She's the sociopath of the family.

Sarah Shane plays Lorna, an insecure woman suffering from chronic fits of depression.

The girls' father dies in a plane crash before the movie begins and both Valerie and Vickie spend the rest of the movie making trouble for each other and the hapless Lorna. The best scene in the movie presents us with a cat-fight between two of the sisters, hinted at in the tacky poster art on the cover.

This melodrama is just plain silly and stupid.

I'm giving this movie three stars only because it's never been out on DVD or VHS until now and it has a certain nostalgic charm.
