Stinging look at how big business exploits and destroys Nature.

This melodrama, based on Edna Ferber's novel, is better known for its offscreen facts and scandals. It's a co-directed Oscar-winning film, which gives a rare opportunity to see the acting of Frances Farmer.

Botched melodrama that's based on the novel by Edna Ferber.
