3.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, 17 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blonde Ice [DVD] [1948] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Claire (Leslie Brooks) is a deranged gold-digger that needs power and wealth. And she does whatever she needs to do in order to get what she wants. She chalks up a good body count before the film is over. I actually quite like her.

Leslie Brooks reminds me of Bette Davis. She put in a good performance as a woman that you don't cross. The film ticks along as we follow Claire and her pursuit of wealth. The best parts of the film are whenever she decides to kill someone - it's always a very determined and direct approach and I found myself looking forward to her next crime. She saves the best for last as she tells a psychiatrist what she thinks of him and then goes for him. She's got 3 people surrounding her but it doesn't stop her. It's top quality.

The film slowed down a bit in the middle and the ending was contrived and convenient. She seemed untouchable up to that point and I had no idea how they were going to put a stop to her behaviour. Her final actions just didn't ring true. Nevertheless, it's an enjoyable film and Leslie Brooks is most entertaining.
