COBRA WOMAN
Siodmak | 1944 | US | 70m
*Dbl ftr with THE STRANGE
AFFAIR OF UNCLE HARRY
“Universal 100”
2:55, 9:35 at Film Forum

“An insane piece of high camp perpetrated by the usually stone-faced Robert Siodmak… The setting is a tropical island located somewhere in the wilds of Universal’s back lot; the story has something to do with twin sisters — one good, one less so — fighting for control of the local tribe of snake worshippers. Few phallic symbols go unexploited, and the gaudy Technicolor is a riot all by itself. Sarong optional.”
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
