Elvira's Movie Macabre: Untamed Women (1952)

The other night I was catching up with my DVR and decided to watch another installment of Elvira’s Movie Macabre. This one, the 1952 drive-in flick Untamed Women.

Plot/ An Air Force officer encounters a strange band of females from a lost civilization inhabiting a remote South Seas island.

There are bad movies, then there are BAD movies, and this one may be even bad for an Elvira Episode. Actually, this is not just bad, it is the double whammy of bad and boring. The plot is choppy, the pacing off and really there is not much to see with most of it being random stock footage spliced together. In the end, this does not offer much and should be ignored (unless like me, you occaisionally suffer from insomnia).

  1. Even though it is considered a "Bad" movie, it featured one of my dearest friends in Hollywood, when she was trying her luck as a model/actress. Billie Nelson-Tyrell, most well known in later years as an Antique Doll Dealer out of Studio City, Ca. She was an expert on Hollywood Celebrity Dolls, and had one of the largest Celebrity Doll Collections in the world. She was seen on both national and international television more for her work in dolls than in the movies, and loved her life, her shop and meeting doll friends and celebrities at local and cross country doll shows, combined. She was an active member of the UFDC (United Federation of Doll Clubs) and died in January of 2014. She was interred with her husband near Tyrone Power's grave at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, Ca., posted by her long-time friend Michael J. Kouri, Regional Director of Region 2 South of UFDC.
