Forty-nine years ago today, the film Madame Sin premiered. It is campy without Bette Davis, so imagine how campy it is with her. It is goddamn brilliant. You have to see this film.

Bette Davis is Madame Sin, a sinister-looking, totally evil, half-Chinese woman who indulges in endless machinations.

Agent Anthony Lawrence (Robert Wagner), who is out to counter her plots for control of a Polaris submarine.
