Grahame was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her breakout role as the brazen bar girl, Ginny Tremaine, in this early Hollywood treatment of antisemitism. Loosely based on Richard Brooks’ 1945 novel The Brick Foxhole, the film also explores the plight of soldiers, as trained killers, transitioning to civilian life and the dangers of demobilisation. Featuring a stellar cast of male actors including Robert Mitchum, Robert Young, Richard Benedict and Robert Ryan, it earned Dmytryk an Oscar nomination for Best Director and won the Best Social Film award at the 1947 Cannes Film Festival.
