I love this little-seen rarely discussed Walsh film. Ida Lupino's performance is superb. However I don't think this is a still from the film. To the best of my knowledge George Raft isn't in the movie. (Robert Alda is a brilliantly conceived weak Raft-wannabe gangster who Lupino slaps around at a decisive moment in the film.) This movie is a strange in-advance-of-cultural-history feminist classics.
It's a pity that this masterpiece is still so little known. An influence on films such as NEW YORK, NEW YORK and ROADHOUSE, this is a portrait of a jazz musician Petey Brown(Ida Lupino, great as always) returning home to her sisters. This is a film about post-war blues very precisely captured and rendered with great simplicity and poetry.
A gem of a film -- Walsh's direction is great, Lupino is fierce and the plot is, for the most part, very intriguing. I have one qualm though -- I think the film could have worked better if the other characters had been more fleshed out. I for one would have liked to have found out more about Sally's husband and his PTSD. All in all though, this underseen film is well worth checking out.
