    The subtitles appear to be in Portuguese, indicating that this was probably an export film for Brazilian cinemas. I think “bondes” is a colloquial term for streetcars in some countries, probably referring to the financing used to build the tramways or buy the cars.

    A check of Internet Movie Database shows “Possessed” starring Joan Crawford and set in LA, with a release date of 1947.

    Title should read “Possessed” not “Obsessed”.

    – thanks, David! – ed.
