The Hucksters (1947) is a considerably sanitized version of the best-selling novel by Frederic Wakeman.

Deborah Kerr, in her American film debut, plays an English widow Gable falls in love with, and Ava Gardner has one of her first important roles as a nightclub singer who's a former girlfriend of Gable's.
