Morbid, perverse, grandiloquent, and illuminated by inflamed Technicolor, Albert Lewin’s film points to a path untaken by American cinema. It has all the earmarks of what the French call un film maudit, a movie damned by its difference and ambition to languish in obscurity for decades, until it’s rediscovered by a few courageous critical souls and hailed as a masterpiece. Well, this movie was a hit on release but it languished in obscurity anyway. Newly restored and ready to be rolled in to the hallowed halls of the Catalog.
