Wee Hunk's rating of the film Desire

During the Depression, people didn't want to see the harsh reality of their lives. They wanted fantasy and this has it all. America is 6'3" and going to punch you in the face if you tricky Eurotrash try anything fancy. Of course, how well would Dietrich do in America married to a man who doesn't make that much money? Luckily she has a wonderful singing voice, but would he let her?
