Madame Sin

Madame Sin

David Greene (1972)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Made for television originally, but released theatrically over here, this cramped-looking melodrama offers a splendid character part to Bette Davis, who falls upon the script with relish and loses no opportunity to chew all the scenery in sight. Co-star Robert Wagner has little to do but observe this awesome spectacle, while director David Greene has the good sense to stand well back and let Davis queen it over a batch of English worthies (Denholm Elliott, Gordon Jackson, Roy Kinnear). The plot, by the way, is some tortuous spy stuff about flogging off a Polaris submarine.


A master criminal resolves to rule the world, and enlists a former CIA agent to help steal a nuclear submarine as part of her nefarious scheme. Spy thriller, starring Bette Davis, Robert Wagner, Denholm Elliott and Gordon Jackson.
