No Orchids For Miss Blandish

Based on a shocking novel by James Hadley Chase, No Orchid's for Miss Blandish's mixture of sex, violence and low morals made it one of the most controversial films of the late 1940's.

The story tells of a pampered heiress (Linden Travers) who is abducted on her wedding night by a gang of small time hoods, in what starts out as a jewel robbery and turns into a kidnapping/murder when one of them kills the groom. Despite her terrifying ordeal, Miss Blandish finds herself falling in love with the gang leader, Slim Grisson (Jack La Rue). They plan to run off together, but the rest of the gang can't see parting with a potential million dollar ransom, or leaving a witness alive - even if it means killing Slim Grisson to get to her.

The book itself was ferociously condemned, provoking George Orwell and praised "the sets, the acting, the smoothly effective direction are all good." Chase's novel was alleged to be the most popular book amongst serving British troops during WWII.
