Thanks a lot acorns!
Your kind generosity keeps the reviews coming!
Famous as the film that launched Rock Hudson's career, Douglas Sirk's soft soap take on Lloyd C. Douglas's Christianity tilted novel is a mid-century classic for other reasons as well.
Sirk's rich signature color palate is on full display for a winking adventure in high camp, in Technicolor no less.
Agnes Moorhead ("Bewitched") steals every scene.
Criterion collector's essential disc.
