Audience Reviews for Dust Be My Destiny

  • Jun 12, 2012
    Garfield and Priscilla Lane always made a good team and this is one of their best pictures. Being a Warners film the subject of a young couple in love and on the run is given the gritty treatment that suits the story and the pair do very well in conveying the hardships faced. As with most of the studios film at the time it looks at the problem through the lens of current events and society's ills.
