Dull!
2 July 2014 | by gnok2002See all my reviews

I am adding reviews for all films that i'v seen that so far lack one, this title had 29 votes but no review at time I inserted this brief note... Dull American tosh, in which crazy golf club owners wife does book on the sex life of the American wife, worthless. I watched this as it was directed by Jack Arnold, I saw it on TV in 1998 and have no memory now of the film, the review was made at the time. I need to pad as the above has not enough lines so I will just add that all the best J.Arnold films were those made in the 50's, and apart from the better known sci-fi & monster films, I would also recommend THE GLASS WEB (1953) which I rate 7/10.
