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.
Originally intended as a vehicle for Ann Sheridan, who turned down role played by 'Joan Crawford'.
Sheriff Titus Semple:
Now me, I never forget anything.
Lane Bellamy: You know sheriff; we had an elephant in our carnival with a memory like that. He went after a keeper that he'd held a grudge against for almost 15 years. Had to be shot. You just wouldn't believe how much trouble it ...
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.
