The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders

If you kept most of the individual elements of The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders and just tweaked the script, you’d have something. I’m not sure if it would be very good, but I know it would be better than this. Moll Flanders comes out with heaving bosoms and ribald humor, then quickly settles into a shapeless mess of odd pacing and a limp central performance.   Not that star Kim Nova... read more

Kim Novak's decolletage, rather than the lady herself, is the true star of The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders. This rambunctious filmization of Daniel Defoe's "naughty" novel stars Novak as a poverty-stricken 18th century damsel who rises to the top of society surrendering her virtue--time and time again. After several wealthy patrons and husbands, our heroine finds true love with roguish highwayman Richard Johnson (who briefly became Novak's husband in real life). The film's best moments belong to its largely British supporting cast, especially Leo McKern as a myopic bandit.

"A bawdy story of how a poor damsel surrenders her virtue again and again to get to the top of society. Terence Young’s British historical comedy in which a young 18th century woman finds that losing her virtue is no handicap to a successful career is way too long and isn't that amusing. I think that's the main reason this movie doesn't work so well is that it lacks in funny situations. I think it was trying too hard to be like the movie Tom Jones. Kim Novak as Moll Flanders looks stunning in "

The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders

“If you kept most of the individual elements of The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders and just tweaked the script, you’d have something. I’m not sure if it would be very good, but I know it would be better than this. Moll Flanders comes out with heaving bosoms and ribald humor, then quickly settles into a shapeless mess of odd pacing and a limp central performance.   Not that star Kim Novak is given much to play for a good chunk of the film mind you, but most of her performance here rests upon her ample cleavage and red wig. She’s positively lovely here, carnal and ample bodied, but once again clearly uncomfortable playing the sex pot for a majority of the movie. Her Moll Flanders is a bit of a limp noodle, managing only to show some personality in scenes where she argues with Ri” read more
