The Worst of 1960 ~ #3 – The Leech Women

16 Dec


This movie was absolutely hilarious actually. I don’t think it was meant to be, however when i saw this some years back, I could barely get through it.  The plot is about a mysterious old womanthat  approaches Dr. Paul Talbot (played by Phillip Terry) and promises to reveal to him the secret of eternal youth. Following her to Africa, he and his wife June Talbot (Coleen Gray) witness the secret ceremony that utilizes orchid pollen and a victim’s pineal gland secretions. June returns to the United States alone and proceeds to keep herself young by killing men for their pineal secretions. She becomes enamored with a man half her actual age, and kills his fiance to maintain her youthful appearance. Eventually the cops come to investigate the murders and June kills herself by leaping from a window.

I don’t think I have seen many of the actors in other films, except Phillip Terry, who was a B-movie star who starrred in earlier films with Ray Milland (the Lost Weekend) and Olivia deHavilland (To Each His Own)
