This British gangster musical origanaly in colour by Eastman colour is here presented in black and white, Jayne Mansfield sizzels in her gangsters moll role with a fabulous rendition of the title song "To Hot To handle" with her fabulous figure and legs to rival Betty Grable not a bad movie a pity its in B&W

I bought this movie for another look at a Jayne Mansfield offering. She turned out to be a fine actress in this movie, not just eye candy. A very pleasant surprise. The plot was ok too.

Even though the opening titles say that this movie is in Eastmancolour, this version is in black and white.
At the age of 14, I sneaked in to watch this at the movies and thought it was fantastic.
Viewed 47 years later, it's more of a curiosity than anything else.
Jayne Mansfield was starting to get broad at the beam but was still quite sexy.
For a movie that was considered quite shocking at the time, it starred some quite big names such as Leo Genn, Christopher Lee, Carl Boem and a 22 year old newcomer called Barabara Windsor.
I would describe it as "interesting" rather than good, but it might be good watching for those of us who are of "a certain age".
Rent rather than buy.

This is one of my favourite JM films. There are quite a few young Brit actors in there, Jayne Mansfield plays it well and an interesting storyline. Sadly the picture quality is pretty dreadful and could do with cleaning up. Apart from that it's well worth the watch.

Format: VHS Tape
I have had this Orbit Media VIDEO for some years now and today, on spur of the moment watched it again. I can't begin to say how I had forgotten how bad this version is. It's not Elstree Hill, but you might be forgiven for thinking it was. The quality is poor (out of focus and multi transfer from 16mm-well that's what it looks like.) It is watchable and I have seen worse, but...Why is the colour version somehow not available anywhere? Why is this censored/much cut version (88' as opposed to the original cinema version 101') seemingly the only one available? This is a version of a pretty good T.Young film that he would turn in his grave if he could see it now. There is still an element of enjoyment to be had, particularly if you have never seen it before. If you have and are considering getting this (in any format at the moment), then perhaps think twice. Sadly I fear there will probably never be a better full colour version available.
