Glamorous socialite Helen Wright (Joan Crawford) takes what she wants -- clothes, alcohol, men -- uses them up and tosses them aside. Then she meets brilliant young violinist Paul Boray (John Garfield). But this is one toy she cant break. Instead, her love for Paul brings Helen to the breaking point. In this acclaimed and profound exploration of desire, Crawford makes Helen a rich, layered character torn between selfless love and selfish impulses. Garfield matches her as the driven genius. Humoresques production values extend to the musical interludes, dubbed by Isaac Stern. Garfields dazzling technique is thanks to two real violinists hidden behind him -- one to do the fingering and one the bow work. Bravo!
