The Lady Craved Excitement

1950

Francis Searle
Director
Hammer Films
Production Company

Early pre-horror Hammer silliness about the eponymous lady getting involved with lunatics and art thieves. Interesting as a curio, but has some clever dialogue, and an early appearance by Oakley Court as the bad guy's hideout.
