George Sanders makes a killing
1 December 2012 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

1960's "Bluebeards Ten Honeymoons" (no apostrophe) is a low budget British take on Henri Landru, a lesser effort than 1944's "Bluebeard" or 1947's "Monsieur Verdoux," but easily the best feature from the undistinguished W. Lee Wilder (brother of director Billy Wilder, long estranged), and scripted by Myles Wilder, son of 'Willie,' nephew of Billy. Distinguished by the always formidable presence of George Sanders in the tailor made title role, having fallen for a gold digging chanteuse (Corinne Calvet) who leads him to commit a series of financially rewarding murders (but not once marrying a single one). The first death (Patricia Roc) is the only accidental one, her determined sister (Ingrid Hafner) bringing about the killer's downfall, but not before he finally exacts revenge on his philandering mistress. The not unattractive Corinne Calvet had seen better days, and would soon be relegated to mostly television roles, her drunken character so unappealing that one wonders why Landru would be so besotted with her, at a loss calculated in his little black book to be 30,000 francs. George Sanders, now happily married to his beloved Benita Hume, would triumph again with his next film, the classic "Village of the Damned," while veteran George Coulouris is once again wasted in a small role. Alas, most of the victims are dispatched too quickly to make much of an impression, but among them are Greta Gynt, who co-starred with Bela Lugosi in 1939's "The Dark Eyes of London," and Maxine Audley, remembered for both 1960's "Peeping Tom" and 1969's "Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed." Ingrid Hafner would soon play Dr. David Keel's nurse through the entire first season of THE AVENGERS, but would not return after Ian Hendry bowed out of the series, leaving Patrick Macnee to carry on with other partners. W. Lee Wilder's Hollywood career featured titles like "Once a Thief," "Manfish" (both with Lon Chaney), "Phantom from Space," "Killers from Space," "The Snow Creature," and "Fright," four of which found their way on to Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater, which aired "Bluebeards Ten Honeymoons" a total of four times (curiously, still unavailable on VHS or DVD). Winding down in Europe, things hardly improved for 'Willie,' with "The Man Without a Body," "Spy in the Sky!" and this picture, bowing out in 1967 with "The Omegans," shot in the Philippines (brother Billy would refer to him as a 'dull son of a b--ch').
