Product Overview

Looming shadows, dastardly femme fatales, and dishes best served cold fill these film noir classics from a forgotten time. Included within this Deadly Dames: Film Noir Collector's Set are three films intended to seep under your skin: SLIGHTLY SCARLET, NAKED KISS, and BLONDE ICE.

SLIGHTLY SCARLET: Driven by blind ambition, fast-talking publicity man Ben Grace (John Payne) ha found a way to smear the reputation of "reform" mayoral candidate Frank Jansen (Kent Taylor). He will do so by exposing Jansen's red-haired girlfriend, June (Rhonda Fleming), with her man-hungry kleptomaniac sister, Dorothy (Arlene Dahl), who also happens to be a convict out on parole.

NAKED KISS: Kelly, a prostitute who tires of her city syndicate and seeks to forget her past, arrive in the small town of Grantville and obtains a job at the Children's Orthopedic Hospital as a nurses' aid. At once, in the small town, she is caught up in a romantic whirl, first with a police chief who wants her for what she used to be, and then with his best friend, the town's millionaire, who, even though aware of her former life, begs her to marry him.

BLONDE ICE: BLONDE ICE tells the bizarre tale of a beautiful society columnist whose desire for money and position turn her into a serial killer - a story most Hollywood studios of the 1940's wouldn't touch! The tagline "Ice in Her Veins - Icicles in Her Heart" perfectly describes Claire Cummins as she eagerly seduces rich and powerful men.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review [Naked] Good Samuel Fuller programmer about a prostie trying the straight route, The Naked Kiss is primarily a vehicle for Constance Towers. Hooker angles and sex perversion plot windup are handled with care, alternating with handicapped children 'good works' theme...Action starts fast with brawl between hardened prostie Kelly (Towers) and cheating pimp who shaved her head, after which she takes to sticks, where she promptly makes it with local cop Griff. Role is played routinely throughout by Anthony Eisley...Pic bogs down at this point in cliches, as hooker rejects berth in nearby red-lighter run by an effective hard-bitten Virginia Grey, instead taking up rehabilitation of crippled children under wing of Patsy Kelly who makes the most of her few lines...Towers' overall effect is good, director Fuller overcoming his routine script in displaying blonde looker's acting range.
