(1942, Sam Wood) “Where’s the rest of me?” gasps Ronald Reagan, as he wakes to a nasty surprise post-surgery; and why does doctor Claude Rains react so strongly to daughter Betty Field’s romance with Robert Cummings? Dark side of a late Victorian, all-American small town, with deep focus photography by James Wong Howe. 35mm. Approx. 127 min.
“Tranquilly accepting the many varieties of psychopathic behavior as the simple facts of life, this film has its own kind of sentimental glow.”
– Pauline Kael
