His Kind of Woman (1951)



Reviews and Comments

Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell star in this Howard Hughes produced film that is part mystery, part noir, but can't really be called either. Mitchum plays a gambler who is offered $50,000 to leave the country for a year but isn't told why. The title doesn't have much to do with the story.

His Kind of Woman is an ultimately satisfying film. But the dialogue is sometimes a little too clever for its own good, and Vincent Price's role in the end is hilarious but overlong. Still, Mitchum is always fun to watch, and there's some interesting intrigue and a rousing action climax to enjoy.
