Description by OLDIES.com:
Like the films for which he would become famous, Lured revels in the glamour and romance that Hollywood had honed to perfection, and plays every scene - every coy glance, every deadly encounter - to the melodramatic hilt.
In Lured, a serial killer terrorizes London, trapping his prey through personal ads in the newspaper and taunting the police with gruesome poems. A Scotland Yard detective (Charles Coburn) enlists the aid of a feisty American redhead (a truly captivating Lucille Ball) to draw the murderer into the dragnet, and leads her across the paths of a variety of peculiar suspects - including a demented clothing designer (Boris Karloff) and an international playboy (George Sanders) - all of whom seem to have designs on the Yard's most delectable decoy.
