Femme fatale Diana Dors — Brit cinema’s answer to the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield — co-stars with George Brent and Marguerite Chapman in director Terence Fisher’s 1952 Hammer Film Production nourish crime drama, Man Bait. This wicked film gem will be heading home on DVD from VCI Entertainment on Apr. 15.
Another blonde bombshell getting a DVD look-see on Apr. 15 is Barbara Payton, whose stormy career came to a crashing end with her death at just 36 years of age (an adult life that featured four marriages and numerous alcohol-fueled affairs along the way).
Near the end of her short, but interesting career, came director Reginald Le Borg’s 1953 film adaptation of Max Catto’s pulp fiction novel, Bad Blonde.
In this film noir a green-behind-the-ears sailor (played by Tony Wright) joins a shady prize-fighting ring with an unlikely entry into the “business” … he soon finds himself way in over his head when seductress Lorna (Payton), the trophy wife of the fight ring’s kingpin, wants her husband dead and he’s just the boy-toy to do it!
