| Putty in his hands
After a bit too much partying on this side of the pond Barbara Payton got this offer from Great Britain for The Flanagan Boy. She got to play a vixen in a story that resembles Double Indemnity with some traces of They Knew What They Wanted.

Merchant sailor Tony Wright takes up trainer Sid James's offer to 3 rounds with his fighter at a carnival and flattens him. James takes him up he soon as a heavyweight contender and fixes his him up with Frederick Valk as a manager.

Valk likes what he sees, but so does his tramp of a wife Barbara Payton. Soon enough these two are hot and heavy in the kanoodling. But her ultimate game is to kill Valk and Wright might just think long and hard enough with his male member to do it. He's putty in her hands.

This one was a bit too slapdash in its preparation for my tastes. And Payton while gorgeous is not in the category of Barbara Stanwyck as an actress.

This boxing/noir film could have been a contender.
