After Florence Fallon's father dies unappreciated in the church where he preached for many years, she becomes embittered and loses faith. She teams up with Horsby, a con man, and performs fake miracles for profit. But the love and trust of a blind man restores her faith in God and her fellow man.Written by

As Florence starts chasing members of the congregation out of the church at the beginning of the film, members of the choir can be seen getting up and walking forward in the direction of the isle (note the young blond woman in the black dress who is first in line). When the scene cuts to a close-up on Florence moving down the isle, we see the choir members still seated in their places. They then get up and file out in the same direction as in the previous shot.

Some of you have listened to my father for twenty years and you can't remember one word he said to you. You will remember this! You subscribed to temperance and I can tell you the names of your bootleggers. You pretend to be decent and I know which of you are cheating wives and husbands. Shall I call out your names?

This gorgeous film is a bit too dark and too harsh on sister Aimee, but it is riveting throughout, and the best Stanwyck movie I have seen. Her acting is so much subtler than in later years. In the final scene she is absolutely ravishing. Fascinating characters, plot, cinematography, with just the right dash of nastiness. They really don't make them like this anymore. The big mystery is where, when and how did cinema learn its craft so early, and why did it lose it sometime in the fifties. Today's movies just cannot compare with this artistry. Today's movies don't look like movies at all. They rather look like documentaries about movie-making. Roll camera is the only special effect they seem know.
