Turner is terrific as Hollie/ Madam X, and truly delivers a stella performance (especially in the final courtroom scenes) while Keir Dullea is movingly touching as the son who doesn't know his mother but is willing to shed tears over the honour of the mysterious Madam X. John Forsythe plays an early Blake Carrington (or is Blake Carrington playing John Forsythe I wonder?) while Ricardo Montalban is equally charming/ creepy as the playboy who seduces Hollie (Turner) and starts her downward spirial.
Its interesting to note that nearly all the major players lived on to better themselves two decades later, in 80's primetime soaps - Forsythe in Dynasty; Turner & Dullea in Falcon Crest, and Montalban in The Colby's - which must surely show how these actors loved playing 'misery'!
Top notch film, up there with Mildred Pierce and Stella Dallas - do not miss!
This was the third Ross Hunter-Lana Turner movie and like the others, it features a glamorous woman in a designer wardrobe who lives in a palatial estate, has her heart broken, it's all delivered with much sudsy melodrama. This film has even more to offer: The star allows herself to appear old and pathetically, even grotesquely ugly and gives a genuinely heart-tugging performance. Don't watch the trailer first, as it spoils the whole story and it's a really good script with lots of dramatic twists and turns and an ending that left me sobbing.
Lana Turner is good in the role of outsider-turned-socialite and Forsythe and Montalban are, too. Keir Dullea is well-cast as an attorney and Burgess Meredith excels as a loathsome criminal. The story is poignant and should ring true to all parents and children. Recommended.
