Temptress Extraordinaire

I think it must go back to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden . . . At least that is what I blame it on . . . . I believe that something has been hard-wired into the brains of men . . . or maybe it is that something has been left out of our brains . . . Whatever the reason, it seems that most 'normal' men become completely brainless and helpless when confronted by a beautiful woman who has the skills of temptation. Now, women don't seem to have this problem, and to confound things even more, they seem to know all about our weakness, and unlike men, they don't seem to be missing anything in their brains . . . . . Quite the contrary, it seems that women not only understand our weakness, they have the awesome power of exploiting our weakness in this area with extraordinary skill and devious planning. The same female that in the mind of a man seems to be an angel of desire can be clearly seen by others as a devilish temptress manipulator . . . . What a conundrum for unsuspecting men . . . . Literature Professor Arnold Dickson, played by Hugh Williams, is just such an unsuspecting man, about to be attacked and conquered by young naughty Arlette, played by Mai Zetterling. Professor Dickson has accepted a position at an all-girls finishing school, and he is the very first male teacher at the school. Although he is 45 years old and has a young daughter of his own in the school, he is the talk of all the young school girls . . . . Especially a young French millionaire's daughter that is very worldly-wise with the boys. Arlette decides that she will have the Professor . . . She has conquered many boys but now she has eyes for the new teacher at the school . . . . She will use guile, deceit and her amazing beauty to tempt, trap and control the Professor . . . He will be powerless in her hands, with all thought of his wife and daughter somehow erased from his memory . . . . I still blame it on Adam and Eve and the apple, and I'm sticking to that story . . . Fortunately for the Professor, his young daughter, played by Petula Clark, is also a woman with the knowledge of how to manipulate men, and she will use her feminine cunning to show her father the madness of his ways . . . Truly this story is not unrealistic or uncommon, and as a man, I am at this moment very jealous of the wit, wisdom and cunning that women singularly possess . . . . And saddened to think that men will never live long enough to understand or be able to withstand the temptations of a scheming woman. The authors did put one short scene at the very end giving us guys a reason to smile, but for me it was way too little, too late . . . . sigh . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
