Critic Reviews for The Revolt of Mamie Stover

All Critics (5)

Russell delivers a powerful critique of capitalism's inherently sexist applications, thoroughly debunking any nobility within the military-industrial complex.

August 18, 2021 | Full Review…

This adaptation of William Bradford Huie's novel offers brunette Jane Russell with atypically red hair and brunette Agnes Moorehead with atypically blonde hair. And that's about it for novelty value.

June 6, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Boehm's script and Walsh's direction don't seem interested in getting to any sort of sordid realism, seemingly happy with what is never elevated beyond a soap opera.

August 18, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Unusual film about a sinister woman who rises to the financial top through war profiteering.

July 17, 2009 | Full Review…

A flat romantic drama, whose only asset is seeing the buxom Jane Russell in CinemaScope.

Audience Reviews for The Revolt of Mamie Stover


Entertainingly florid drama spoiled somewhat by a silly conclusion but still fun with a red-headed Jane Russell and a platinum blonde Agnes Moorehead.
