I agree with the praise above. Crawford is perfect and there's not a weak moment in the supporting performances. In this print it's trimmed so short that you almost have to already know it's there, but Huston's last moments are outrageous - cocking his head slightly as the drums swell and twitching slightly as he apparently fights against surrendering to a pagan Pago Pago dance. Some people criticize Huston's stiff (sorry), abrasive performance, even calling it a "caricature," but I grew up in a tiny town dominated by an evangelistic church and I witnessed this sort of predatory behavior. Huston nails it. Given the 35-40 year difference, Huston probably underplays the role.
In the re-make, Rita Hayworth and Jose Ferrer were also an interesting combo.
