    I took the wrong DVD off the shelf at the library. I got home and found myself with a copy of Lured instead of another film. Decided to watch it anyway. Hey, it had Lucy ( who made some very good noir films) George Sanders ( a favorite from All About Eve) and Charles Coburn ( who did films with Jean Arthur). To my surprise this was a nice little thriller done by Douglas Sirk. Try it the next time it is on TCM. Currently it can only be had by ordering from foreign sources.

    Darkness, thick plumes of fog, nearly empty night streets o' London ... so atmospheric it reminds me of the walks during blackout in Rita Hayworth's "Tonight and Every Night". Sirk telegraphs a real sense of forboding in these dark early scenes. Not unrealistic for the mid-forties, and just shows us how the bright lights of today take away from the allure of Old London town. It's not the Grapes of Wrath, but it's a decent little movie carried by wonderful actors and good sets and Sirk's vision. Give me heavy mist! wet cobblestones! a killer with eight notches on his belt! a sassy dancer with veiled hats and fab dresses! a police force all half-barmy over her! Five indulgent stars, thank you very much, ma'am.

    All-Star Cast transcends average script with captivating chemistry and fascinating study of character.Normally an average film at best, but with the likes of Lucille Ball, George Sanders, Charles Coburn, Boris Karloff, George Zucco,Alan Mowbray, Cedric Hardwicke, Alan Napier and above average background actors, the movie sizzles with curiosity and intrigue. The intrigue is mainly on the main Actors, and how they integrate . Lucille Ball is trying to catch a killer in England and she is lovely. Lucy displays depth in her acting and keeps the viewer totally interested. A sound track that is more annoying than helpful holds the film back, but add more bass and it will make it more enjoyable.A nice little gem that will bring smiles to your face and pleasure to your life. This film is truly a "guilty pleasure." 5 out of 5 stars.

    Solid mystery thriller, very well cast. Lucille Ball is terrific in a dramatic role. Good photography and lighting. Great pace and it's always interesting.

  • LUCILLE BALL AS NEVER SEEN BEFORE

    How refreshing to see Lucille Ball in this dramatic, glamorous role. It is a welcome change from all of her future comedic roles that made her famous and a household name. Charles Coburn is his usual charming self as the Inspector. "Sandra Carpenter" wears some fabulous, eye-catching gowns and looks beautiful in them.

  • Gorgeous Lucille Ball Lures Killer

    This film is top notched in every way from glamour and humor to suspense. Ms. Ball is a real dish in this film. She's funny, playful, smart and quite a sight in an off the shoulder sculpture fitting gown. The rest of the character actors are a treat but George Sanders performance displays a vulnerability rarely shown by him. This film is pure entertainment-a real delight!

  • Mysterious and suspenseful film!

    Lured is a great film noir that showcases shadow and light in dark places like never before. Setting in the streets of London, the film provides terrific suspense and mystery. Lucille Ball is amazing playing as a brave and strongheaded dancer who is used to lure in the serial killer. This film needs to be shown on TCM for viewers to see!!
