"Excellent... Devastating"

The main character in ‘Lady From Dubuque’ is not the title character; it’s not even the dying Joe. It’s Sam (an excellent Michael Hayden), her husband, the guy who asks, ‘Who am I?’ The final, devastating image of Mr. Hayden’s naked face suggests that there’s no comfort whatsoever in the answer.
