Anna Lucasta

Anna Lucasta ★★

Broderick Crawford was the key guy elevating this melodrama. Oskar Homolka also contributed in his own way, but for the most part I felt the acting in this one didn't work all that great, and that includes Paulette Goddard manic character, unfortunately. Something about it feeling too staged or not being framed right for the emotions to come across genuine. Story seemed interesting, so I'm looking forward to the 1958 black cast remake.
