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.

"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.

What a perfect pairing of films. After her production role of the fascinating and morally complex STRANGE WOMAN (see my separate 5 star review for that), Hedy was awarded this great murder mystery, based on a true story, DISHONORED LADY.

I saw this on a very poor VHS transfer (not purchased through Amazon). The script is wonderful - a bit melodramatic, the casting is great, but the post production aspects, especially the music are a real disappointment because Hedy shines in this film with HER FINEST ACTING WORK ON FILM. In another role that is complex and real in its portrayal of a "party girl" trying to straighten out her life, her self, when she becomes a murder suspect.

This is a real "slice of time" film in that it deals with women who were working, "like men" who "thought like men" i.e. enjoied and wanted careers; which was considered a real social problem at the time as men came back from the war and wanted their jobs back. Women were meanwhile enjoing the freedom of having their own jobs their own independence, and this was seen as transgressive, especially if the woman, like this one, was also sexually liberated.

The script hits all these notes appropriately, but the awful operatic music hammers away. Fortunately, that wasn't on the set. Hedy gives a layered, thoughtful, and - a rarity - a relaxed, humorous, and joyful performance. She has a "drunk scene" that is playful and completely real, a very subtly funny portrayal of being "pleasantly inebriated." All this makes me think this must be who she truly was. She had just finished a film she had fought for, and was working on this fantastic character who liked working and was interested in science (as she was herself).

Lamarr is visually stunning and gives very good performances in both of these underrated gems. Both movies are gripping and have believable plots and dialouge. In addition the content is very racey for the time.
The image quality of this Triton DVD is good. While not up to Criterion or tier 1 studio quality it is very watchable. Most of the image is semi-crisp. I did not notice alot of hiss, though there is some. On "Strange Woman" there is one part lasting 1-2 minutes where there is a loud hum.
Overall this is a very good buy. You get two movies with the beautiful Lamarr(she turns her head, lifts her eyes and a man would do anything). The quality is better than average. The plots and acting are great.

I was very disappointed in what should have been a great set. Despite all the talk on this set about the Ulmer Restoration Corp. and some French restorations, there are just too many unacceptable issues. On disc 1, Strange Illusion is a French restoration. There is a long sequence where the audio is seriously out-of-sync with the picture. I don't see how it could of been restored that way, so that must be a problem with the DVD production. The overall picture quality is better on the Roan edition, but it has problems with splices and low audio. The Strange Woman looks fine, but at one point has a fade out in the middle of dialogue where it looks to have missing footage. There are also numerous audio breaks during the preacher's speech near the end. I found the commentary very informative, though. The special features on this disc are good, except the trailers are rather rough. On disc 2, the French restoration of Bluebeard is a disaster. They actually used an edited print. These French restorations are quite cheap ones. There were numerous edits during the initial puppet show. It was obviously deliberate, because every scene which shows the puppeteers working the strings was edited out. The Roan edition has the complete print and is recommended over this. After all this, Daughter of Dr. Jekyll is actually a very good print in its OAR. The special features on this disc are excellent. On disc 3, Moon Over Harlem is a fair print with a few splices. Goodbye, Mr. Germ is a good print with only one splice. Swiss Family Robinson is a very good print, but unfortunately has an All Day Ent. logo throughout, thereby ruining any viewing of it. This set is too problematic to give anymore than 2 stars.
