Band of Angels (1957)

A young woman grows up as a privileged southern Belle in the ante-bellum South but after her father dies broke, her world is destroyed when she discovers her mother was black.

Lush production of an otherwise long-winding and absurd story.

Halliwell (no star): "Long-winded romantic adventure, rather lamely scripted and developed. The star's presence reinforces the impression of sitting through the ghost of Gone With the Wind."

Maltin**1/2: "Flat costume epic..."
