Memerized by Stanwicks's Ownership of Herself
- Just a Gal
I absolutely loved Stanwick in this movie. I think it transcends the year, the decade in which it was set, and speaks more of the internal yearning we have-- many of us have to be more than lives we are living. In her last scene with Raymond Burr's character (whom I was outstanding from my view in his supporting role), I almost cried at how she refused to let him play a such key role in margenalizing her life, without paying a price of his own. The manner in which he so casually rebuffed her after their brief daliance (does this theme ever get old??), seemed to deserve a price that he pay to restore her self worth, her value, which he ironically observed early on, set her (them) apart from others... Too bad he didn't let his early assessment guide his ultimate behavior-- maybe at the end of the day, she was just a woman, a little too big for her britches... um humm--loved it!

No way Babs and Sterling Hayden fell so suddenly in love. No way an independent gal like her tells off her editor, heads to a new job on the East coast, and goes all giddy and BAILS on her life dream for Hayden and the burbs of L.A.No Way!! This movie's plot was ridiculous, the sets were sub-par, and there was something really odd about Barbara's mouth that distracted me. I thought the film started out with a bang... that great banter between her and the MALE assistant at her desk in San Francisco. I thought "Wow, this is futuresque! Feminist! I'll BUY this one!" It spiralled down and out of control thereafter. Two stars given for the first 10 minutes or so. And for the great Jay Adler.
CRIME OF PASSOIN

Tepid Film Noir
- Bruce Reber
Barbara Stanwyck starts off as a newspaper columnist being a 50's career woman who swears she'll never leave her exciting job for marriage, but she ends up getting hitched to cop (not executive, as stated in the synopsis) Sterling Hayden. Soon, she comes to realize the huge mistake she made when she has to deal with being both a housewife and police wife, having to face a life of mediocrity that she claimed she despised. She gets herself into a very messy situation when she schemes to get her husband a major promotion by having an affair with his boss Raymond Burr. She ends up being arrested by for murder by her husband, ultimately becoming a victim of her circumstances. Not one of Stanwyck's better performances, and "Crime of Passion" is certainly no "Double Indemnity"
Bab's IS sexy...
- Steve S.
especially in one scene w/ Sterling BUT the story line (plot) and the speed of the movie make's it hard to believe that Ms. Stanwyck's character could "turn" so fast. In fact, I found myself asking - "nah, c'mon, she did this for that"?
Barbara Stanwyck can certainly turn on the charm, sex appeal, raw emotion and draw me into her character. Her performance in this film impresses me as a powerhouse one. It's the way that she uses her acting assets so masterfully well that works.I'm glad I didn't miss it!
Crime of Passion
- Wendy Winkler
Barbara Stanwyck gives one of her best performances in this movie. She is absolutely powerful. There is one scene where she breaks down and you can hear the anger and frustration in her voice. You can see it in her face. Ms. Stanwyck's performance is electrifying.
