Classic Witch-Hunt Flick Delivers the Goods 30's-style
Solid 30's costume melodrama, certainly an artistic equal to director Frank Lloyd's more famous "Mutiny on the Bounty". Excellent acting from Colbert and, surprisingly, MacMurray (but then he's great in "Double Indemnity" too). Sterling Holloway is wonderful as the spurned suitor, and Madame Sul-Te-Wan is great as the VooDoo Woman. An excellent introduction to the Witch-Hunting syndrome that is suitable to show to young children. Witch-Hunting still occurs today in politics, religion, workplace, school and sometimes even in the family, and this film could be a tool for inciting discussion.
