| Promiscuity and She
Beautiful and suicidal Hedy Lamarr (as Madeleine Damien) takes her psychiatrist's advice, and moves from promiscuous Manhattan magazine editor to struggling Greenwich Village artist. She falls in love with building mate Dennis O'Keefe (as David S. Cousins), a scientist; and, the two plan to marry. But, when Mr. O'Keefe is called away on business, Ms. Lamarr gets snookered and lapses into her prior lifestyle. Although she comes to her senses in time to flee frisky John Loder (as Felix Courtland), her presence in his apartment makes Lamarr a murder suspect.

So, how does she explain all this to returning fiancé O'Keefe?

This deliciously ludicrous, dated melodrama is gamely performed by Lamarr, who really pulls it off, with determination and beauty. These types of pictures are always easier to watch with an extremely attractive woman at the helm; and, "Dishonored Lady" is tailor-made for a beautiful Hollywood actress. Interestingly, Mr. Loder was, at the time, Lamarr's real-life husband - though, not for long. None of the men seem entirely up for Lamarr, but chatty Margaret Hamilton (after "The Wizard of Oz") and catty Natalie Schafer (before "Gilligan's Island") offer helpful support.
