First screened in August 2013
Director: Josef von Sternberg (completed by Nicholas Ray). Cast: Robert Mitchum, Jane Russell, Brad Dexter, William Bendix, Gloria Grahame, Thomas Gomez, Philip Ahn, Vladimir Sokoloff, W.T. Chang, Edward Ashley, Trevor Bardette, John Daheim, Maria Sen Young. Screenplay: Bernard C. Schoenfeld and Stanley Rubin (based on a screen story by Robert Creighton Williams).
Twitter Capsule: Troubled production somehow fuses Sternberg's hypnotic style to Ray's red-blooded sensibility. A comedy with sex and menace.
