Beloved but impoverished maid Nellie (Betty Field) arrives, greeted by her employer Constance (Lana Turner, her first scene) and lively daughter Allison (Diane Varsi), early in Mark Robson's Peyton Place, the hit 1957 adaptation of the Grace Metalious novel.
Janitor Lucas (Arthur Kennedy) commiserates with veteran teacher Miss Thornton (Mildred Dunnock), who had been favored to become the new principal, when board member Swain (Lloyd Nolan) brings in Rossi (Lee Philips), who got the job, in Peyton Place, 1957, from the Grace Metalious novel.
Another night, another club. Jigger Pine's quintet is sockin' 'em solid before hopping a boxcar to the next gig. Not much money in this life. But plenty of tumult involving a criminal (Lloyd Nolan), a songbird (Priscilla Lane), a siren (Betty Field) and those Blues in the Night (the famed title tune and other songs are by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer.) Anatole Litvak (The Snake Pit) directs this work packed with future filmmakers: scripter Robert Rossen (The Hustler), actors-turned-directors Richard Whorf (numerous TV series) and Elia Kazan (A Streetcar Named Desire), and Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), who provides the film's montages. Check your pulse if one of Siegel's inventive sequences doesn't provoke gasps of amazement!
