Williams introduces us to two ageless good-time girls, out for a good time in a desolate East St. Louis juke joint.

O'Neill's understanding of a good-time girl was quite different -- this scene from "Welded," written in 1924, stands alone as a moving portrait of unexpected redemption when a footsore young streetwalker teaches an errant young husband how to get through life.

"An opportunity to see an artist experiment and expand ... [Parrot] effervescently embraces overstatement. Watching this 1957 comedy, one could imagine the author himself laughing heartily..."
- The New York Times, 1986
