The DVD hangs up at several places. Attempted to play it with different top of the line equipment. None will play it. I wonder how Amazon can sell this.

Format: DVD
"Lured" is a forgotten thriller of a movie, starring Lucille Ball as an American in London who helps Scotland Yard capture a serial killer. The subtle plotting is fast-paced and satisfying. Ball sparkles with wit and sophistication and makes the movie special.
You will be kept in suspense until the very end. If you know Ball only through her most famous manifestation as zany Lucy Ricardo, this movie will reveal her ability to fulfill a dramatic/romantic role. Although the real-life chemistry that sizzled between Ball and Desi Arnaz on the tv show is missing here, the supporting cast is splendid, and the city of London as it was in the 40s provides an interesting backdrop. Highly recommended.

Lucille Ball as the dramatic heroine of a murder mystery--who would have thought it? I'd only known her daffy "I Love Lucy" role, which I never liked much (forgive me, but I'm not a fan of slap-stick comedy). I bought this DVD for George Sanders. I had no idea Lucy could pull off a dramatic role, but she does--brilliantly.
Even if you've never been a fan of "I Love Lucy", give Lucy a chance with this DVD. You won't regret it.

Fans of Lucy will be surprised to see her in this "re-discovered" thriller as I was. I knew she had done one film noir in 1946-"The Dark Corner" where she played a private dick's secretary. She was good in it, playing it straight. But this one I had read about but it was so obscure (not even turning up on TV) that I figured I'd probably never see it. I had also read that she didn't like this film because it was so morbid. Kino has resurrected it on video then DVD and it's wonderful. Not really morbid (maybe to her it was) but it is a serial killer tale set in foggy London and she is a tough, been-around American showgirl stranded there when her show folds. While working as a taxi-dancer, her roommate disappears and is later found to have fallen prey to a madman who lures pretty girls to their deaths through the personals and then sends Scotland Yard twisted clues based on morbid poetry. Ball is excellent as the detectives use her as a decoy to trap the killer and the cast features Boris Karloff as a mad clothes designer(!) who tries to use her to model his designs for his "critics"---actually an empty room save for his dogs. Karloff is one of many strange characters she encounters answering the personals looking for the killer...great cast all around. Lucy is just wonderful.

Lucille Ball starred in Hunt Stromberg's independent production of "Lured" in 1947, four years before she began her long and eminently successful run starring with husband Desi Arnez in the hilarious sitcom "I Love Lucy," which broke TV records for longevity. In "Lured" Lucille is cast as an undercover police decoy in London seeking to help capture a twentieth century "Jack the Ripper" serial killer of women.
On the surface it would appear highly unlikely that "Lured" would serve as a genesis or prelude to Lucy's comedy triumph which began four years later. Ironically the similarities are paramount. While the dramatic vehicle is devoid of the kind of hilarious slapstick that helped make "I Love Lucy" a big hit, one sees the same wisecracking lady in action. In "Lured" using humor and delivering the proper one-liners enable her to survive.
At the story's beginning Lucy, an actress whose London show bombed early, gets a job at a taxi dancing establishment at night to survive. When her closest friend and fellow dancer is killed, she visits detective Charles Coburn at Scotland Yard. Coburn is impressed by her native intelligence coupled with her beauty. He finds her the perfect lure to trap the brutal killer who has been terrorizing London women.
Leo Rosten, who later wrote the novel "Captain Newman," which became a successful film starring Gregory Peck and Tony Curtis, penned a rapidly moving script while German emigre Douglas Sirk, who would later direct Rock Hudson in his two major dramatic triumphs at Universal, "The Magnificent Obsession" and "Written on the Wind," directed deftly and provided the kind of moody settings of nocturnal London that makes viewers feel a part of the scene.
