MCMXXXIX XLIX: The Devil’s Daughter

The Devil’s Daughter. Arthur H. Leonard. 1939.

The audio and video quality here is horrible… but I’m enjoying this already.

Love this tune.

This is a super low budget movie, but it does have a certain charm? I guess it’s mostly down to the actors — it’s not that they’re… convincing… but it’s all very amiable.

OK, it’s getting kinda bad now.

It’s ahead of its time in some ways? I would have guessed that this was made in the mid-fifties — it’s got so much in common with so many bad movies I’ve seen via Mystery Science Theatre 3000 — but it’s 1939. I guess… it’s because it’s a low-budget American movie made outside the studio system?
