I too, have been a fan of Hedy's for a long time. All of her movies are very watchable because of her beauty and a few are better than others because of the production quality, story, etc. But, Dishonored Lady was made by a director that knew absolutely what he had. Every scene has the very best angle with lighting and expression. A lot of her movies have her looking great most of the time (how could she not look great)but, this one maximizes her beauty in every single scene. The copies I have seen are a little rough, and that is a shame. This is the movie that makes you wonder why she wasn't in higher demand. The story is great drama, with a respectable supporting cast, and allows her to be the working girl, the bad girl, the sad girl, the girl next door, and the accused murderess. Can it get any better than this, with every scene suitable as a still? There is not an actress today that comes close to having the screen presence that Hedy had in her hey-day.
