Sweatiest Movie Candidate
- Movie Lady
How Hedy Lamar managed to keep a straight face while reciting her dialog and constantly referring to her character in the third person in this movie, I'll never know. But thank goodness she did because it's so much fun and a competitor for the title of Sweatiest Movie years before Cool Hand Luke entered the race.
Highly Entertaining Steamy Melodrama
What a fun movie! Everyone is pitch perfect in this movie. Frank Morgan is especially good. There isn't a trace of the Frank Morgan affectations from so many of his lighter roles.
- Teddy Kaye
From the moment Hedy Lamarr arrives on screen as Tondelayo the movie is very entertaining. Hedy is quite stunning and it's easy to see why she can't be resisted. The plot reminds me of a time when there was more mystery in the world. The location, shot in BW, truly seems exotic, strange and real. Highly underrated, this is sensual entertainment.

I'm thinking that in 1942, this movie did not play well in the U.S. south, if at all. Especially given the beauty of Heddy in black face & full body make up -- too unsettling for both sexes. And especially since the southern man has a history with women of color. The Halle Berry's of this day and age did not just suddenly appear, you know. Lovely biracials, as well as Beyonce types, have always existed, and the white man has always been overly fascinated.
