Shortly before shedding her snakeskin vamp persona for good by wrapping herself in the ermine confines of Nora Charles, Myrna Loy terrified and terrorized as the murderous mesmerist Ursula Georgi in the pre-Code horror show Thirteen Women. Following a racist sororitys cruel rebuff, half-caste Ursula embarks on a blood-thirsty trail of deceit and murder until only one woman (Irene Dunne) is left to face her. Aside from the allure and interest of its two leading ladies each on the cusp of their ascensioninto cinema legend Thirteen Womens delights are rather more diabolical and devastating than the more domestic concerns of a traditional Womens Picture. From its breathless and terrifying (and arrestingly staged) opening aerial atrocity through itsstabbings, suicides and hidden bombs, Thirteen Womens relentless pace startles and astonishes, ever driven by Loys portrayal of Ursulas unalloyed and unapologetic evil. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured ondemand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
