SMASH-UP - THE STORY OF A WOMAN: It's co-written and gin-soaked by Dorothy Parker. Susan Hayward actually got an Oscar nomination for playing a histrionic club singer who's had her left hand surgically replaced with a cocktail shaker. She plays a drunk with such relish you'll worry that she's using sense memory, and she delivers the best chick-punch in Hollywood history.
