This moody and controversial drama takes place in Depression-era New Orleans. Dove has traveled by bus from Texas to find his wayward lover Hallie only to find her at work as a prostitute in the Doll's House. When the lecherous lesbian madame Jo discovers Dove's intentions towards Hallie, she has him beaten to a bloody pulp by her hired goons. He is found by Kitty, now a happy hooker at the Doll House, and is taken back to the cafe where the compassionate Teresina heals his physical and emotional wounds.  The film taken from the novel by Nelson Algren is much tamer than the original text. - Dan Pavlides, Rovi (1962, 114 min., video)
