"Juke Girl", a 1942 noir about farmworkers in Florid directed by Curtis
Bernhardt, a German Jew who fled Germany in 1933.
"Like other European emigrees, Berhardt used expressionist techniniques
-low-key lighting, extreme camera angles, deep focus photography – to
create mood and atmosphere, slowly incorporating these ideas into his
films as his career developed."
It stars Ronald Reagan as Steve Talbot, an itinerant farmworker, and
co-stars Howard Da Silva as an evil foreman. Da Silva would be
blacklisted when the witch-hunt began.
