One Desire 1955 Anne Baxter Drama Romance

Stars: Anne Baxter, Rock Hudson, Julie Adams

One Desire Story Line. In 1900, runaway Nugget arrives in an Oklahoma boom town to find his brother who’s a dealer in the casino of a palatial bawdy house. He is also the lover of the madam, Tacey Cromwell. Together, Nugget, Clint, and Tacey seek respectability in a Colorado mining town. Clint finds work at the town’s new bank, while Tacey adopts another orphan, Seely.

Clint is pursued by the banker’s daughter Judith Watrous, who’s seems sweet but takes ruthless steps to eliminate competition. Result for Tacey?  Heartbreak, renunciation, and tears a-plenty.

Anne Baxter is aces as Tacey the dance hall queen who wants a simpler life with Rock Hudson and his brother in a small town. Unfortunately, outside forces cause her no end of trouble. She suffers grandly in spangles and feathers all in rich Technicolor but manages to rein in the overheated emotions with a warm controlled performance.

Anne Baxter really delivers as a dance hall queen who gives everything up to pursue boyfriend Clint Saunders to a booming Colorado town. The exciting ending with the underlying message to those who do evil is wonderful.

Tagline: Nobody ever paid me for being a Lady!
