Betta St. John,
Beautiful Jenny Hager finds she can always get what she wants from the men in the 1820's port of Bangor, Maine. Freed by his death from her drunkard father she soon manoeuvres herself into a position to marry a middle-aged monied local businessman. Though she often uses his money to do good, she continues to consider all other men fair game. Written by

Typical modest budget black and white film from director Edgar G. Ulmer. A tedious but interesting tale of a beautiful woman (Hedy Lamar) stalking man after man in the lumber country of Bangor, Maine circa 1820. Love 'em and leave 'em. The ravishing Lamar dominates her scenes. She is drop dead gorgeous and her lips are sweeter than wine. She is also alluring and fickle as hell. George Sanders is solid as they come. Gene Lockhart and Louis Hayward are hammy; while Morini Olsen is powerful as the brimstone preaching Reverend Thatcher. If you like costume dramas, you will enjoy this tale of love and lust.
