Fine direction by master auteur Douglas Sirk and an Oscar-nominated score highlight this adaptation of the Anton Chekhov drama The Shooting Party . Oscar nominated in 1945 for Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture, Extra features include: Theatrical Trailer

The film is set in Russia where there is a definite class split. We see Olga climb her way to the top at the expense of those who fall in love with her. Then, there is a dramatic twist - a murder. Who is the killer? The cast are good - Horton is funny, Sanders is both suave and desperate, Darnell is ruthless while Sig Ruman is particularly good as Kuzma, Darnell's husband. The film is a love story that is particularly tense and dramatic at the end. There is a terrible substitute for the word "lightning" that is repeated a few times in the film, an attempt to draw in the viewer to sympathize with those that utter it. It fails. If anyone said "heavenly electricity" to me, I'd tell them to talk properly. Nevertheless, it's a good film and worth seeing again.
