Tarot (1973)

General International Film
Directed by José María Forqué
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Free-spirited American Sue Lyon gets involved with the young manservant of blind, wealthy Fernando Rey. He manages to talk her into marrying the old man for his money as they carry on their affair behind his back. He soon discovers them, leading to murder. Their attempts to cover it up lead to more complications. Standard murder plot gets no help from bland direction by Forqué. Even the presence of old pro Gloria Grahame as a housekeeper fails to enliven things. Sue Lyon continues her spiral into oblivion after her remarkable debut in Kubrick's Lolita.
