A Patch of Blue vs. Broken Blossoms



Here's an interesting comparison. Two tales of no-holds barred child abuse. Two white women find rescue in the form of non-white men. Broken Blossoms has the more conventional denouement. A Patch of Blue is more intriguing, plus it's got Shelley Winters really letting fly. In many ways she's far more damaging and threatening than Battling Burrows the boxer. A Patch of Blue wins.

That should be a Patch of Blue winning...
