This movie brought forth the form of a religion but without it's power! In ancient & current times, sex religions include a period of preparation & purpose so that the congregants are focused as to the usage of the power being summoned through the altered mind & orgasm. What came down on the boomer generation was the fall out from 20th century practictioners of this dark faith who determined to crack the mass mind producing a schism between the old & young along with disabling mental/spiritual discernment that rejects indecency & disorder! The reenactment of Adrianna's lost current memory due to the trauma of her husband's death & the LSD induced terror of madness is what a few 'infidels' could use to discover their right minds. Johnny's final scene of debauchery lit up a brief ironic moment as he advised the ant on the tainted sugar cube that "That's bad for you" & protected the ant in his pocket! The passing of the hep-c age group might allow their grand children to scale the walls of the psyops box into which said ancestors have been stuffed!
I had always heard of this movie, but never seen it. But thanks to TCM, I got the chance it was not bad, enjoyed it from beginning to end, thanks again for airing it, you really do give the viewers what they ask for.

The Beautiful Lana Turner!
Marriage, substance abuse, violence, domestic problems, delusionary thoughts, sex, and infidelity. It could only mean Lana Turner! The plot for this movie doesn't really matter much, as it's the people in the movie itself that are far more interesting from a relative point of view. In short, Lana is secretly drugged so that she will go insane and her stepdaughter can collect the inheritance from her deceased father. The stepdaughter, played by the attractive Karin Mossberg, colludes with her newest boyfriend turned husband to attempt to drive poor Lana insane. The best part is, the stepdaughter has been convinced by her man that it was Lana that killed her father. One good thing about this film is the screen time of the perky Pamela Rogers, who plays the friend of the stepdaughter, only she's not so friendly as she openly wants her friends husband. This film is somewhat of a cult classic for several reasons including: it's a counter culture type movie from the 1960's, it's a little campy, and it's one of the beautiful Lana Turner's last starring films. For Karin Mossberg, this was one of her very few films, and her co-star Pamela Rogers didn't make many either. Considering the reception this movie had when released, and even Lana disliked it publically, it's no surprise that many in the cast had short Hollywood careers. However, in the end the only thing that really counts in this film is Lana. This was not a big budget film, and it shows. Lana's appearance is sometimes odd, as the make - up problems and very visible hair pieces on her are quite apparent at times. Lana is still Lana though, and she is in fine form physically and is believable in the role despite the sometimes melodramatic acting that she was famous for in her later movies. All said, it's a decent movie for what it is and as always it's a true pleasure to see the beautiful Hollywood legend Lana Turner no matter what the movie may bring.
Fascinating Lana Turner Relic
Ignore the plot... a contrived story of a step-mother being driven insane by drugs.. and concentrate on the star of the movieLana Turner. This is a fascinating piece of 60's pop-culture and its effects on aging Hollywood bombshells. Like Joan Crawford before her, Lana Turner attempts to play age 30 when she's 60, and for viewers looking for a "Mommie Dearest" type camp-fest, you've come to the right place. Miss Turner's face looks like it's strung back with wires, and her histrionics when faced with a step-daughter's sullen attitude and killer boyfriend are nothing short of jaw-dropping. Watch the soft-light close-ups, the costumes, the staging, all designed around Miss Turner and her desire to remain, of all things, Lana Turner.
