(1949 Michael Curtiz) A fascinating curio from Michael Curtiz that mixes politics and class consciousness with melodrama and noir elements. Joan Crawford plays a carnival dancer stranded in a small Southern town who tries to leave her tawdry past behind with a new love, only to run afoul of the plans of the local sheriff and petty political boss, played with relish by Sydney Greenstreet. -LG
