Deadlier Than the Male

There is no doubt that Deadlier than the Male is loaded with colorful and exciting production values. Opinion thereafter is likely to divide, however, for the film will strike some as okay dual-bill escapism, and others as overly raw and single entendre. Sadism, sex and attempted sophistication mark this Bulldog Drummond pic.

David Osborn, Liz Charles-Williams and Jimmy Sangster scripted the latter’s original story, in which Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina are two cohorts of Nigel Green in his industrial deal-making.

Green’s modus operandi is simple: intervene in major deals and promise consummation, then kill off all opposition and collect the promised fee. Scripters had a major task in making explicit murder appear as nonchalant as taking tea, and they rarely achieve the goal.
