The novel caused a scandal, and Faulkner later admitted that it was written in part to turn a profit. He was growing weary of writing novels “that got published but not bought,” he confides in his introduction to the 1932 Modern Library edition. 2 Although Sanctuary is a deeply serious work of art, there are, to be sure, some “horrific” elements in the novel, founded on conversations Faulkner had during his occasional tours of some Memphis nightspots. 3 Because the film departs from the novel in many ways, it is necessary to outline the book before considering the movie’s literary source.
Tommy is being raised by his older sister Drina, who has little control of the boy. He inevitably gets into trouble with the law. The final curtain falls with Tommy probably headed for reform school, where he might well grow up to be the next Baby Face Martin.

The Hays Office was concerned about the filming of Sanctuary, however, and James Wingate, one of Hays’s right-hand men, reminded Paramount that the Hemingway script had been heavily censored. 5 Moreover, Paramount was further advised that they should change the name of the film so that it would not be associated with Faulkner’s notorious novel.
