Pollster Fred MacMurray gets caught in the middle of a hillbilly feud. This 1945 black comedy has an uncommon ferocity, and the frequent lapses of taste on the part of director George Marshall only contribute to its outlandish tone—part brutal horror, part giddy farce. It's not what you'd call a good movie, but there isn't much else like it. With Helen Walker, Peter Whitney, Porter Hall, and Marjorie Main doing a psychotic variation on her Ma Kettle role. 93 min.
