    What Have They Done to Your Daughters?

    ★★★★

    Not quite to the level of Solange, but this similarly bleak giallo by the same director (and sharing 3/4 of the same name) was also similarly f*cked up and has probably even more gore while managing to be somehow sleazier than the aforementioned film...so yes this film was a fun watch as well no doubt.

    The score was great and gave the film an odd tone when paired with the brutal killings, but it was an odd tone that worked…

    Even Cornel Wilde was great…

    Bravo, Jean Harlow. What a show she put on here...as possibly the craziest woman depicted in the pre-code era. She dripped sex appeal and insanity, and I loved it (that is what I foolishly tend to gravitate to in women). 

    Red-Headed Woman has an ending which would never be allowed during the hays code’s tyrannical rule over Hollywood in the following years, and honestly, almost everything that this film represents and performs would not be allowed under the code. For this…
