Editorial Reviews

Northern Lawyer John Reynolds (John Wayne) goes up against the lottery racket in 1880 corrupt Louisiana. While to the riverboat to New Orleans, he meets and falls in love with Southern Belle, Julie (Ona Munson), General Anatole Mirbeau's beautiful daughter. The General (Henry Stephenson) and his right-hand man Blackburn 'Blackie' Williams (Ray Middleton) run the popular Louisiana State Lottery Company, which support illegal activities and brothels while corrupting judges and other city officials. The battle between the men are complicated with Reynolds' love for the General's daughter and interrupted by torrential rain storms that breaks the levees, floods the city and threatens to destroy the city of New Orleans. Stylishly directed by Bernard Vorhaus who had previously directed John Wayne in the memorable drama, Three Faces West. Includes an early performance by Dorothy Dandridge (Carmen Jones).

I purchased this title primarily for Ona Munson. She had an interesting career, probably most famous for portraying "Belle Watling" in Gone with the Wind." Which turned out to be a blessing and a curse for her, unfortunately. This film allows her to carry a lead, and frankly she does a fine job here. John Wayne does his usual John Wayne, which is fine if you like it. The film itself is what was called a "B" picture, but amazingly there are some expensive effects (for the era and studio) in this movie. There is a truly interesting part at the very end when New Orleans appears to wash away when the levee breaks. Sadly prophetic. But just wait until you see how John Wayne saves the city!

John Wayne plays John Reynolds, a dapper, corruption busting lawyer dispatched to New Orleans to investigate the shady doings of a Lottery. There he discovers a city of vice that needs a good old-fashion cleansing. He also find love in the arms of Julie (Ona Munson), the haughty wealthy daughter of the man who runs the Lottery. Once she discovers what Reynolds is in town for however she dumps him and becomes his opponent in delivering justice. This leaves a opening for Blackie (Ray Middleton), her father's underling and the real villain of the story.

Reynolds is really just a variation of the white hatted hero cowboy role Wayne played constantly in the 30's. Except here he's cultured, well dressed and doesn't carry a gun or even ride a horse. He does get into a couple of fisticuffs but mostly this melodrama doesn't demand much from him.

Ona Munson is really the main character, as the title suggests. Her Julie goes through a full emotional arch from love, anger, revenge and finally to redemption. All of this directed at Reynolds, whom she mistakenly believes is responsible for her father's death (it was actually Blackie who did it). Unfortunately in her battle against Reynolds the script has her doing some pretty illegal things, like bribing a judge, right there in the courtroom in the middle of a court case! While Reynolds tries to sway the politicians to fight corruption, Julie is throwing lavish parties for the same politicians to goad them against him - and so on. Heck, even Blackie can't believe how audacious she is. Check out his dumbfounded expression in the courtroom bribery scene.

There is a lack of chemistry between the two leads mainly because Wayne and Munson share few scenes together and are adversaries for most of the running time.

Lady From Louisiana, 1941 film

It begins on a paddle-wheel steamer that arrives in New Orleans. People greet the passengers. There is a conflict over past legal matters. The Lottery is run by the Mirbeau family. One woman wants to slose this gambling operation. [Are many harmed to benefit a few?] Its Mardi Gras time (“Fat Tuesday” - before Lent begins). Masks are worn as part of this celebration. Is New Orleans the nearest equivalent to Paris? There is a drawing for the winning lottery tickets. There is a winner! Watch what happens to one winner; he is taken to the “Parisian Palace” and swindled out of his winnings. An investigator for the Anti-Lottery League goes there. But Gaston won’t talk now. Mr. Reynolds visits General Mirbeau and asks about the murder.

Reynolds says the Lottery business is behind Organized Crime in the city. Mirbeau says the Lottery supports the City Hospital and other charities. The Anti-Lottery League seeks more signatures on its petitions. The group that controls the Mayor’s office has a diplomatic scheme. Mirbeau reproaches Blackburn for taking kick-backs; he will be replaced. We see a “butting match” at the “Parisian Palace”. Will one man join the Reform League as a spy? A gang attacks General Mirbeau, their signs identify them as Reynold’s supporters. Mr. Williams takes control. Reynolds talks to Julie and is rejected. Julie visits the business office of the Lottery to plan strategy. Lottery salesmen force tickets on unwilling buyers. Can they be prosecuted? Not if the witnesses are afraid to testify!

Can New Orleans be cleaned up? Mrs. Gaston will testify. Reynolds asks the other witnesses to reconsider - and they do. The gang follows Reynolds. There is a fight. There is a court hearing to revoke the business license of the Lottery.

One of the great non-westerns that the Duke did. I love any movie he is in but this one was very enjoyable and gives a new perspective on his acting abilities and flexibility.
