| Not a bad flick
With a 1940's type plot updated to the 1950's, "Models, Inc." moves along briskly in a neat, well-executed manner. This film is what it is, and doesn't pretend to be an a-level classic but that's OK.

A pseudo expose of the modeling business, it begins with a cheap gold-digger (Gray) who tries to go big time with a business owner (mature John Howard doing fine work as a square who should know better). Marjorie Reynolds gives a smooth, professional performance as his knowing secretary. When ex-con heel Howard Duff appears the movie swiftly proceeds from gold-digging into sleaze, and then into dark criminality. Duff gives a solid, forceful performance that dominates the film.

Gray's character sort of vacillates along as a tool for whatever the script requires at the moment, but overall is an adequate depiction of a noir type girl who must struggle to find the wherewithal to somehow go legit.

"Models, Inc." will probably hold your interest at least for the good work by a very fine cast. Its basically just an above-average little exploitation film but that is good enough for entertainment value.
