Movie Mom

“Strange Cargo,” starring Clark Gable and Joan Crawford, is on the surface the story of prisoners escaping from a Devil’s Island penal colony.  But it is also a powerful and moving spiritual allegory with a Jesus-like character played by Ian Hunter and a devil-like character played by Albert Dekker who compete for the soul of the prisoner played by Gable.  It is well worth a watch so set your DVRs for midnight (Eastern time) tonight.
