I have an affinity (STRONG affinity) for films that would fall under the description “escapist entertainment” – movies that didn’t take themselves too seriously and hope you follow their lead.
Cobra Woman is a 1944 adventure (directed by Robert Siodmak) that is a delicious example of this type of film. Its star is the ridiculously beautiful and charismatic Maria Montez and she pretty much dares you to look away anytime she’s on the screen.
The cast also includes John Hall, Mary Nash, Edgar Barrier, and Sabu.
You can find Cobra Woman on dvd or blu-ray (amazon link).
