Female on the Beach (Universal 1955, Jeff Chandler, Joan Crawford)

Published

on

In Female on the Beach Joan Crawford stars as a gambler’s widow who comes to live in his beach house in Balboa Beach, California. She falls victim to a gigolo (Jeff Chandler) and the pair of con artists who manage him (Cecil Kellaway, Natalie Schafer). After marrying Chandler, she fears he is planning to kill her.

Female on the Beach bears similarities to an earlier Joan Crawford film, Sudden Fear (1952), in which a lothario actor (young Jack Palance) tries to con and then kill his influential new wife (Crawford).
