please don't wake me
the antidote for whatever ails the soul? divine intervention! we all know that ava gardner is stunning and has the ability to play nasty. what a treat it is to see her cast off any shred of malice and slip into something more comfortable such as a curtain.
robert walker will forever be loved for his portrayal of 'bruno' (the greatest psycho tuna of all) in hitchcock's 'stranger on a train.' double your surprise and find ava as tinkerbelle and robert both naive and bewildered as a man who falls for a statue that has come to life. fantasies are rarely as innocent as this one. 1948's 'one touch of venus' is a charm.
