DIRECTOR: JOHN REINHARDT

CAST: JOHN IRELAND, JANE RANDOLPH, SHELDON LEONARD

Reinhardt, an Austrian émigré working on the fringes of Hollywood at Poverty Row studio Eagle-Lion, found the freedom to turn out a scathing expose of all- American bigotry. Newlyweds John Ireland and Jane Randolph arrive in a picture-perfect town to visit an old friend, and discover an anti-Semitic conspiracy seething beneath the placid exterior, as supposedly upstanding red-blooded patriots cover up a violent secret.

Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by The Packard Humanities Institute.
