Once thought of as racy and adventurous in its treatment of sex, this turgid nonsense about a high-class whore with love in her heart has dated atrociously. Taylor hams away and Harvey in his debonair mood is distinctly unappealing, while the overall effect is too excruciating even to be unintentionally funny.

It was far worse than GA gives it credit for. Others have given it better ratings, indicating perhaps that they have not seen it since it was a first run film. Absolute cant and drivel: screenwriters bite your cyanide-filled tooth! Someone has said it's a New York film, but Taylor's brown outfits are seldom seen east of Kansas City.
