Format: DVD
Too late for Tears is directed by Byron Haskin and written by Roy Huggins. It stars Lizabeth Scott, Don DeFore, Dan Duryea and Arthur Kennedy. Music is by Dale Butts and cinematography by William C. Mellor.

One night Alan and Jane Palmer (Kennedy & Scott) are driving to a party out Hollywood way, when all of a sudden someone in another car tosses a suitcase filled with cash into the back seat of their car. So begins a tale of greed, betrayal and murder.......

Money is poison.

Low budget be damned, Too Late for Tears (AKA: Killer Bait) ends up being a film noir (in story terms) of some excellence. Banging the drum whilst singing that money be the root of all evil, Haskin (I Walk Alone) and Huggins (I Love Trouble) put Scott front and centre as one of the ultimate femme fatale bitch's. Jane Palmer is a cunning cat, it's perhaps not for nothing that Duryea's Danny Fuller pet names her as Tiger, for Palmer knows exactly what she wants, and now that she has the financial means and sees a way of elevating herself to the richer playing field, she literally will stop at nothing to keep it that way. Be it murder or her sexuality as a weapon, Palmer is in control; even as she takes the knuckles from the hapless Danny. It's a dynamite character and Scott has all the necessary requirements (sultry, blonde, angular bone structure) to make her work for maximum effect.

Around Scott there's much to enjoy as well. Duryea is perhaps a given in the sort of film noir role we just love him for, but also Kennedy as the foolish husband makes a telling impact. DeFore, as the character is written, has to play his cards close to his chest for much of the time, this often gives the sense that he has wandered into the wrong movie.

Little-known cult material because of Lizabeth's Scott's amoral, dangerous housewife pursuing the American Dream in the only way the lower-middle classes can in her mind and doing so out of vengeance for being looked down upon by the rich. Hers is an impressive performance with a smile that can light the room but a steely determination which feminists will admire. Dan Duryea has another variant on his small time mobster who is really this time a sad little guy with a smidgin of conscience which leads him to drink. She doesn't need that at all. Twists and turns nicely throughout.

Married couple Lizabeth Scott (Jane) and Arthur Kennedy (Alan) are driving at night when a bag of money gets anonymously thrown into their car. Wow, thanks for that! Arthur Kennedy wants to hand the money to the police while Lizabeth Scott wants to do what every sensible person would do, ie, keep it. With a bit of careful planning, Scott sees the money as hers and is determined to hang onto it and she certainly takes some mean decisions in her quest to keep it.

The film starts at a good pace and the story keeps you guessing. However, the quality of the film isn't too good and the film jumps on occasion. It doesn't ruin the viewer's ability to follow the story, though. The cast are all likeable, especially the three main male leads - Don Defore (Don), Dan Duryea (Danny) and Arthur Kennedy, so sit back and enjoy. Would you keep a bag of $60,000.00 if it presented itself to you? Is Lizabeth Scott really that bad a person....? Actually......yes, she is .....

Format: DVD
The two star rating is for the jittery, blurry, choppy, sub-par print of the film that Alpha Video has chosen to release on DVD, not for the movie itself, in which husky-voiced Lizabeth Scott plays one of the most ruthless of cinema's femmes fatale.

Alpha Video is an interesting outfit. It specializes in truly esoteric, public domain movies (JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER, anyone?), but you're taking a real gamble on whether the transfer you get will be even watchable.

On the plus side, the audio quality of TOO LATE FOR TEARS is fine -- that is, when you're not missing chunks of dialogue because of the crappy, mangled print.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By C. O. DeRiemer HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 19 Feb. 2008
Format: DVD
"We were white-collar poor," explains Jane Palmer to her husband, Alan. "Middle class poor. The kind of people who can't quite keep up with the Joneses and die a little every day because they can't." What she's explaining is her desire to keep the $80,000 someone tossed into their convertible by mistake. It was supposed to go to a blackmailer. Alan, an honest guy who loves his wife, wants to go to the police. She doesn't. (Please note: Plot points are discussed.)

Jane Palmer (Lizabeth Scott) is a toxic combination of sex, greed and phony love. In other words, a great noir femme fatale. If only Too Late for Tears were a great noir. Jane convinces her husband (Arthur Kennedy) to keep postponing turning over the money to the cops. Then she starts spending it. And Alan keeps underestimating her needs. "What is it, Jane?" Alan asks her. "I just don't understand you! I've tried to give you everything you wanted, everything I could." "Yes," she says, "you've given me a dozen down payments and installments for the rest of our lives."

When the blackmailer, Danny Fuller (Dan Duryea), tracks her down and wants his money, she convinces him she'll do a deal. "You haven't anything to hide, have you?" Danny asks, while looking her over as she sits and crosses her legs. "No, I can see you haven't." Jane soon sizes Danny up as a weak crook who can be led around by his undershorts.

After Alan disappears, permanently, Jane misleads her brother's sister and convinces the police she's done nothing wrong. Then Danny gets his with a belt of poison in his scotch. The sister's suspicions are met with an understanding smile.
