Enjoyed Dick Haymes Acting
4 October 2008 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Enjoyed this 1974 film which deals with a couple, Helen Mercer, (Amanda Blake) and her boyfriend who are con-artists who go around getting the confidence of widow's that are lonely. In one scene, one widow is killed and they both move on to another woman named Gretchen Addison, (Tisha Sterling) who is a very clever woman who takes a liking to Helen Mercer and takes Gretchen under her wing, so to speak. Harold Porter, (Dick Haymes) plays the role as a judge who is good friends with Helen and also has a love interest in Helen. Some one is killed and this changes the entire story around and points the audience into another direction. This is a great Classic film and very worth your time to view and enjoy this film.
