DIRECTED BY:
Rober Stevenson, Robert Stevenson
GENRE:
Drama
Unbridled passion…scandal…murder! This seductive crime drama slickly directed by Oscar nominee Robert Stevenson (“Mary Poppins”) stars classic beauty Hedy Lamarr as Madeleine Damien, the fashion editor of an upscale Manhattan magazine in the midst of a breakdown. Considered wildly controversial for its time, even after the Hays Office demanded large-scale omissions of what it considered to be gratuitous sex and violence, “Dishonored Lady” nonetheless represents yet another complex and daring performance from the matchless Lamarr.
