Genial Warner contract director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) freaks out in a southern gothic apparently designed as a follow-up for Joan Crawford's Academy Award-winning performance in Mildred Pierce. It didn't work out that way—the film is sweaty, delirious, and purposefully perverse, with Crawford as a carnival dancer who infiltrates a political ring headed by a sexually ambiguous Sydney Greenstreet. A strange, strange movie, it casts its own kind of spell.
