Barbara Stanwyck could portray a troublemaker like few other actresses in Hollywood. Remember what she did to Fred MacMurray in Double Indemnity?--well she does it here to Douglas, in a different context. Fritz Lang provides some strong direction for the actors.

A Streetcar Named Desire by the sea. Down on her luck city gal (Stanwyck) must choose between a sexist, racist, self-pitying alcoholic (Ryan), or the stooge of the sexist, racist, self-pitying alcoholic (Douglas). She tries hard to be a good wife, but it's all over when Ryan staggers out of her bedroom in a wifebeater.
