She was a tall woman and carried herself proudly, for all she was lame and the wind had tousled her hair and the gravel of the road had cut and dirtied her hands and bare arms and the red crepe of her gown.
Facing her, the woman had become beautiful; her eyes were long, heavily lashed, set well apart under a smooth broad brow, her mouth was not small but sensitively carved and mobile, and in the light from the open fire the surfaces of her face were as clearly defined as sculptured planes.
Her dark eyes widened at the man and woman, but were hidden by lowered lids by the time their faces had turned toward her.

 The Sonnets (3)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Sonnet 132 is a witty inversion of the convention; the images we are accustomed to are still there--eye/heart, sunrise, Venus in the evening sky--but (if she has pity on him), her dark beauty becomes the ideal, and fair becomes foul.
We gather from lines 9-10 that the Dark Woman has been "unjust," which in the context sounds rather like "unfaithful," and that the Poet is significantly older than she.
The Dark Woman is a force of evil, tempting the Poet to the near-madness of what W.H. Auden has called "that most humiliating of all erotic experiences, sexual infatuation." [Note 1]

 Fay Wray in WOMAN IN THE DARK (1934)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
It would be an understatement to say that Wray has rarely looked more breathtaking, in many scenes here she simply glows with sexuality - but this is the sexuality of a woman who is either nonchalant about her appearance, or completely unaware of it.
It begins with Helen (Nell O'Day), the young daughter of the town sheriff, rediscovering her infatuation with Bradley and only gets worse with the unexpected appearance of a beautiful woman in a satin dress who more or less bursts in on Bradley and Helen.
A fast-moving melodramatic comedy-thriller shot in New York (a less-than-common thing in the 1930s) Woman in the Dark stands out as providing a significant leading role for Fay Wray and a great deal of enjoyment for its viewers.
