Indefatigable genre director Franco reteams with leading lady Maria Rohm, cast here as a murdered woman who returns from the dead and dons the titular accoutrements to mete out revenge on those who assaulted and slew her; jazzman James Darren forsakes alive-and-well Barbara McNair to heed the siren’s call. With Klaus Kinski, Dennis Price (in the first of his five films for Franco), and musician Manfred Mann away from his band onscreen and as composer.
