Whistle Stop (1946) George Raft - Ava Gardner



SHE SPELLED TROUBLE FOR EVERY GUY THAT MADE A PLAY FOR HER!


When beautiful Mary returns home to her "whistle stop" home town, long-standing feelings of animosity between two of her old boyfriends leads to robbery and murder.

Raft is a lazy lout who's stuck in a small town who drinks and gambles his time away. Ava purportedly comes back from the big city hoping he'll have changed his ways and is looking to be upwardly mobile. When that doesn't occur she starts taking up with Tom Conway, a local club owner.  The script leaves a lot to be desired, Ava Gardner is the main attraction in this movie. All I can say is Whistle Stop, blows.★★
