From the Back Cover:

Rain In one of her most famous roles, Joan Crawford plays Sadie Thompson, a sassy siren with a shady past and an even shadier present. When the Reverend and Mrs. Alfred Davidson (Walter Huston, Beulah Bondi) are stranded for two weeks on the storm-swept tropical paradise of Pago Pago, they're immediately at odds with Sadie. The fire-and-brimstone minister tries to show her the error of her ways, but she's not interested. As fierce rains crash down on the island, and impassioned battle of wills begins, with Sadie's soul going to the victor. Eventually, each opponent succumbs to the other - at a fatal price. This beautifully photographed film was based on a story by W. Somerset Maugham.

Many years ago, young Martha Ivers, Walter O'Neil, and San Masterson were involved in the brutal death of Martha's wicked aunt. But thanks to Walter's crafty father, the crime went unsolved and Martha inherited her family's enormous mill. Now, years later, Martha (Barbara Stanwyck) is the richest woman in town and married to Walter (Kirk Douglas, in his film debut). Their high-living is threatened, however, when San (Van Heflin) returns. Martha and Walter were never quite sure whether San actually saw the crime years before, and now they fear he might have blackmail on his mind. Working together and apart, this deadly couple will stop at nothing to keep their secret from the world!
