Powerhouse mix of racial drama and mystery, vividly shot on location in Mississippi.

Paula Deen apologists, take note: This MGM adaptation of Faulkner's novel demonstrates that the N-word was recognized as ugly and hurtful even in 1949 -- even in Mississippi, where it certainly was heard with some frequency.
