Douglas Sirk's movies are like nothing else I've seen. So melodramatic yet so socially conscious at the same time. This one mixes two mother-daughter relationships with the burgeoning civil rights movement. I mean, obviously.
The movie is full of memorable lines. One of my favorites is uttered by a sleazy Hollywood type hitting on the lovely Lana Turner, "You are decent, no doubt possessing fine principles. Well, me, I'm a man of very few principles ... and they are all open for revision."
