Fast Review: She Devil, 1957

She3 Devil 1957

Mari Blanchard is the "she devil" of the title, and in a bizarre reflection of Blanchard's own life history (she suffered from polio as a child, and various other health issues later. She died of cancer aged 47) the tale starts with the character Kyra Zelas bedridden and on the verge of death from tuberculosis. Two doctors (played by Albert Dekker and Jack Kelly) give her an experimental serum that not only snaps her out of her death spiral but gives her attenuated abilities to overcome injury and illnesses of any sort.

Review: Cult of the Cobra - 1955

1955 Cult of the Cobra

In Cult of the Cobra, Faith Domergue and Richard Long star in a tale of American G.I.'s bringing home to New York City a snake-curse they picked up in a South Asian country, and when members of their group start inexplicably dying from snake bite, they've got a problem they've got to solve quickly.

Roman Holiday 1953

A tale of a Sleeping Beauty who is a literal princess and who is awakened by a prince. Howver, the princess is half-drugged and sleeping on a sidewalk in Rome at night, and the "prince" is a down-on-his-luck expat American reporter who just happens to come upon the vulnerable young woman.

Of course he can't just leave her there, and when she describes where she lives (a palace) he knows that must be alcohol talking, so he takes her back to his tiny Rome apartment until he can figure out what to do with her.
