In the interior scene where Tone drives Hopkins back to granddad's farm, the back-projected dirt road is clearly seen through the rear window of the auto. Switching to an exterior shot, Tone stops the car to open a gate, drive the car through, close the gate and continue driving. The next interior shot with the rear window, however, shows only the same dirt road already seen, with no gated fence receding in the distance, as it should. See more »
A very quiet story in terms of action, but full of wonderful performances in material that could have been easily dull in the wrong hands. Miriam Hopkins is at her most beautiful in her prime. When she's on the screen,you simply can't miss her star appeal, which is absolutely magnetic. Not only a beauty, but she proves herself again to be a great actress with a dynamic range. (Also see Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde 1932, Trouble In Paradise, Story Of Temple Drake,and Becky Sharp for Miriam at her best.) Beulah Bondi offers great support with her character that you will love to hate. Lionel Barrymore is also quite lovable in his role as the elderly patriarch of the family.
Don't see this film when you're high energy, but see this film.
