When Josie first meets Jim in the bar, she asks him for money to pay for his drinks and he pulls something out of his pocket and puts it on the table. Josie picks it up and it's a miniature (lapel) version of the Victoria Cross - the UK's highest military award. Its equivalent in the U.S. would be the Medal of Honor. See more »


Josie: I know you're a real swell and I ain't gonna go grabbin' ya off, just when you're down on your luck and thankful to anyone that slips you a kind word.
Jim: [Jim kisses Josie] Do you think that's gratitude, Josie?
Josie: Oh, I don't know what it is. But, it feels - elegant.

It's hard to believe this is 1930.

This top-notch film includes PTSD, alcoholism, racism, sexual harassment, and even fire-walking. It's white-supremacy themes could come out of recent headlines in VA. It goes on to explore the motivation some people have for looking down on other races.

And I think it took 50 years for fire-walking to become popular.

Sally O'Neil is perfect. She gets all the best lines, and delivers them convincingly.
