Tarnished Angels (ej svensk text)
Drama från 1958 av Douglas Sirk med Rock Hudson och Dorothy Malone.
Covering a routine assignment on a barnstorming air circus in New Orleans, reporter Burke Devlin (Rock Hudson) falls in love with a key character in his story, trick parachutist LaVerne Shumann (Dorothy Malone). LaVerne’s husband, Roger (Robert Stack), daredevil racing pilot, is more in love with himself and his planes than with his wife or their ten-year-old, Jack (Chris Olsen). Roger’s hero-worshipping mechanic, Jiggs (Jack Carson), resents Shumann’s treatment of LaVerne. Devlin discovers that Jiggs, too, is in love with LaVerne, that the three soldiers of fortune have lived together since joining the air show and that young Jack is not sure who his father is. To decide which one LaVerne would marry, Roger or Jiggs, the two men rolled a pair of dice. Who does LaVerne’s end up with?
