A small town corrupt sheriff manipulates local candidates to the state legislature but he eventually comes into conflict with an out-of-town carnival dancer.
"Screen Director's Playhouse" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on May 26, 1950 with Joan Crawford reprising her film role.
Sheriff Titus Semple:
A man going into the legislature should have a heart of gold and a respectable wife.
Near the end of the film a mob forms in front of Joan Crawford's home. The mob is not seen but you hear dozens of people outside making verbal threats. The next scene is her driving away. You would think there would have been a confrontation outside with the mob of people.
The opening credits are presented on a book as someone turns the pages.
