|One of the most distinguished works of art to emerge from the B movie swamp, Joseph H. Lewis’s Poverty Row picture Deadly is the Female turns pulp into pure gold. A tale of an outlaw couple on the run, this is a small but perfectly formed masterpiece of flash and trash, unwholesome obsession and criminal daring.
A fast, amoral, consistently gripping study. It sees Lewis firing on all cylinders, turning budgetary limitations to advantage; most memorably of all, a small-town heist is shot, from inside a car, in a single long virtuoso take. Victor Young provided the yearning score, the great Russell Harlan the moody yet dynamic camerawork; the sheer intensity of the film borders on the subversive and surreal.
