In the scene where Iscah places Millie on top of a stump in the swamp, a human hand appears out of the water beside an apparent alligator head. It's not clear if this is supposed to be a body part from a corpse or if it's a stuntman manipulating a fake alligator. If the latter, this would suggest an error. See more »

Some pretty cool shooting on location in the swamps of Georgia, which director King Vidor pushed for and which was a big milestone for Hollywood, and some nice footage at sea as well. Unfortunately, it's not very remarkable otherwise. The story is weak, the pace is slow, and the cast has no star appeal. The characters in the deep South are also very cartoonish. I liked the scene where the widower (Frank Mayo) is thinking of the young woman (Virginia Valli), and she comes to him in an overlay, and it's probably the film's best, much better than the long, drawn-out brawl.
