Peter Graves in Bayou

Bayou - otherwise known as Poor White Trash (1957), starring Peter Graves, Lita Milan, and Timothy Carey. This is a pretty good film in its own way - one of those arty black and white melodramas of the 50s that don't get much recognition any more. I wish I had a better copy of it than the one I have. Needless to say, Peter Graves is rather handsome in it, and even gets something of a sex scene at the end, if you can count views of naked arms and shoulders and lots of cut in scenes of a hurricane raging as a sex scene. Lita Milan is sultry and and Timothy Carey is downright insane.

Here are some lobby cards from the film.
