I didn't know the end before seeing the film so it came as a complete surprise to me. To blame now Siodmak/the producers for not having had the courage to go against the Hays code is, in my opinion, a little bit silly and pretentious. The film's message is quite clear and this concession to American morals of the 40's doesn't bother me. Some current directors do a lot worse. Without censorship. Strongly recommended.
strange small town noir about a sister who has blatantly incestuous feelings for her brother and tries to break up his relationship with another woman. geraldine fitzgerald is pretty terrifying when she smiles. the slapped on code ending ruins it.
