A notorious woman
28 January 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Sheree North arrives in Medicine Bow intending to open up a dress shop. But she has a notorious past which catches up to her. Stephen Roberts remembers her and her former lover, attorney Liam Sullivan is in Medicine Bow as well.

Roberts maintains an air of respectability, but he's a real bottom feeder and he winds up murdered and North is seen leaving his room.

North who after 20th Century Fox kept trying to make her another Marilyn Monroe got the fine roles that she deserved like this one. Another performance of note is that of Tol Avery who chews the scenery and the footlights as the prosecuting attorney.

The real murderer is rather obvious, still a fine episode.
