| Luscious Paulette still holds her own!
ANNA LUCASTA, although it won't go down in film history as a classic, does have some redeemable assets; namely it's star PAULETTE GODDARD. Strutting about the Brooklyn docks in a tight black dress, as a free loving lady of the night, Goddard looks terrific. Her best scenes are played in that locale in a bar owned by Will Geer. Along with John Ireland as her merchant marine companion, she plays it to the hilt as only Paulette can. There was another version filmed later with Eartha Kitt playing the leading role, but this viewer liked Goddard better. A good supporting cast helped bring the corny dialogue to focus. With Broderick Crawford, Oscar Homolka, Gale Page, William Bishop and Mary Wickes [she's wonderful with her dry takes. And of course there's yet another scene which became a Goddard trademark; that of being in a bathtub of bubbles.
