Unable to escape from their personal demons brought on by a lifetime of luxury, the tragedy that is their destiny spirals out of control when Kyle becomes suspicious of his wife (Dorothy Malone) and best friend (Robert Stack) – whom Marylee pines for endlessly.

SIFF Film Center | The Films of Douglas Sirk
In hopes of establishing a career, aspiring actress Lora Meredith (Lana Turner) moves to New York City with her daughter Susie. While visiting Coney Island, chance brings them together with Annie Johnson and her daughter Sarah. Taking on the African-American Annie as her maid, Lora forges a “family” of sorts in a cramped New York apartment. As Lora’s success mounts, her relationships begin to suffer, and Annie’s daughter becomes resentful of her mother’s subservient position. Based on the 1933 Fannie Hurst novel, Sirk’s notorious final feature is unique in its depiction of family strife and racial issues in 1950s America.
