German director Robert Siodmak came to Hollywood due to the rise of Hitler in Germany during the 1930’s as well as the advent of WWII sweeping across Europe. After resettling here in America, he began to make his name by directing a series of unpretentious and stylish crime thrillers as well as B movies for Universal Pictures in the 1940’s. One of those B pictures he made during this decade was Cobra Woman, an exotic adventure film that was among the first movies Universal shot in glorious Technicolor. Previously released on MOD DVD by Universal, Kino has licensed the film for its Blu-ray debut as part of their Studio Classics line.

Is Maria’s dance as good as Debra Paget’s in Indian Tomb?
I'm answering with a definitive no, but then it depends what you're looking for. Debra Paget's dance in INDIAN TOMB is so visceral it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up and the disc it was imprinted on seem to combust from the heat of her movements. The dance in COBRA WOMAN is clunky and campy, not sexy. It launched a thousand drag acts, while Ms. Paget's no doubt inspired thousands of wet dreams.
