A life of vice... - Passport to Shame review by LC

Spoiler Alert
16/06/2020

This steamy melodrama regarding a girl forced into prostitution is certainly a little rough around the edges, and the central dichotomy of the heroine as either abused hooker or loving wife is somewhat simplistic, but there is still plenty to enjoy. Diana Dors not only looks great but has a well-rounded role, and Herbert Lom is great value as the bad guy. If there is a main issue, it's that these two are far more interesting than the slightly blander main leads, but everyone gets a decent amount of running time. Add in a couple of notable cameos for Joan Sims and Michael Caine ( the latter a real 'blink at you'll miss it' one, admittedly), and a hilariously bizarre drug-induced dream sequence, and there's more than enough to keep this watchable.
