The Black Orchid

Time Out says

A seriously bad tearjerker. Loren's life is in ruins - her gangster husband has died, her son has become James Dean - until she meets up with nice widower Mr Quinn, who shows her his farm and daughter. Cue for the daughter to go round the twist at the thought of Loren as a stepmother. One in a long line of clinkers (except for the masterly Hud) from Ritt, and a first script by composer Joseph Stefano, who got his act together with his next picture, which was Psycho. ATu.
