Storyline

Into the vast swamplands hurry three people; honky tonk dancer Annabelle Tollington (Ann Corio), cheap promoter "Flash" Bland (Jay Novello) trying to catch Annabelle, and escaping convict Jeff Carter (Richard Deane), only a few steps ahead of the bloodhounds of Police Lieutenant Rance (Ian MacDonald). Jeff reaches the cabin of Lizbet Tollington (Mary Hull), Annabelle's niece, and fiancée of trapper Pete Oliver (Jack La Rue), Annabelle's ex-sweetheart. Lizbet, seeing Jeff in the mirror as she tries on her wedding gown, believes him to be the man she will eventually marry, as stipulated in an old proverb of the swamps. She hides Jeff from the law. Annabelle, determined to break Lizbet's engagement to Pete, tells him that Lizbet is hiding a man in her cabin. The enraged Pete cools off when he realizes that Lizbet loves Jeff and determines to help him. Rance arrives and recognizes Annabelle as "The Swamp Woman" of the honky tonk, whose testimony saved "Flash" from a prison sentence on the... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Fun Poverty Row Exotica!
25 November 2015 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am adding reviews for all films I've seen that so far lack one, this time I get a chance to review one I like, this was shown on satellite station information TV, the print was worn and only ran 60 minutes, review follows... This is an enjoyable slice of poverty row melodrama, into the swampland arrive an escaped convict, with a cop in pursuit, and ex resident honky-tonk dancer, perused by her sleazy manager, the convict falls for a local girl, and all is resolved by a link between the characters, but what makes this fun to watch is a good creation of the cut off world of the swampland, and the central performance of famous stripper Ann Corio, in her first film, she had another 4 exotic roles in the next 3 years, all worth a look; recommended as long as you like 40's poverty row films, Good!
