When I was growing up in Texas, "Boys Town" was another term for a city block, usually south of the border, inhabited solely by prostitutes.

The Spiral Staircase Review


Good
Heralded as a noirish classic, The Spiral Staircase is terribly forced as a thriller.

Dorothy McGuire does a fair job as the mute could-be-next victim, but overall the thrill of Spiral is largely gone.
