The last of Preminger's overblown adaptations of best-sellers, this may have a lot more juice than sustenance, but at least Preminger keeps the juices flowing.

An outstanding, tasteful but hard-hitting, and handsomely-produced film.

You'll come away feeling that although it's worthy in its ideals, it could have done with a touch less overblown melodrama.

The Preminger flair which made The Cardinal so enjoyable, despite its hackneyed script, seems to have deserted him in this lumbering melodrama.

Preminger always seemed to attract heavyweight actors for lightweight films.

Hurry Sundown is a gigantic masquerade in which the participants put on two things: a Southern accent and the audience.

Otto Preminger's Hurry Sundown is a frustrating case, not good but not particularly bad, with a smokescreen of controversy surrounding it and obscuring its real faults.
