Ada (1961)

Notes: 1/16/11
Susan Hayward is brassy. She is such a commanding presence.
Lots of confrontation scenes between Hayward and Wilfrid Hyde-White
Dean Martin is an interesting choice for the politician.
Story of a strong woman defying the odds and he reputation. Not all that interesting.
Martin Balsam has a good supporting role.
Ralph Meeker was handsome, but he's sort of a dick in this movie.

Review: C
Susan Hayward is the sole reason to watch this uninvolving soaper about a hooker who struggles to gain respect when she marries a politician. Dean Martin is an odd choice for her husband, but he's always a welcome presence. Still, it's Hayward's show and she makes anything watchable.
