A Paramount film that hastened the implementation of the Production Code. It's based on Faulkner's Sanctuary, and it's a real shocker. After having been missing for decades, a 35mm print surfaced in time for the Paramount retrospective at MoMA in 1972. The museum arranged a private screening for Miriam Hopkins who sadly died shortly thereafter from heart disease. I caught the public screening and thought the film was quite, quite good. A Criterion treatment is very welcome.
