Wonderful Catherine Spaak
Saw this a long time ago. Few memories left. Scenery-chewing Bette Davis, young handsome Buchholz, good b&w photography, waste of Moravia's novel. All the memories go back to 18-year-old Catherine Spaak, in the summit of her beauty, youth, freshness, sexiness. Spaak was probably the sexiest teenage star in movies ever (arguably tied with Nastassja Kinski). AND there's the scene in the bed, when Buchholz "buys" her covering her with money bills. Go see.
