The Eyes of a Mother
13 May 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Disgraced by his father's scandal and suicide, well-heeled Ronald Colman (as Stephen Dallas) leaves childhood sweetheart Alice Joyce (as Helen Dane) and moves to a small mill town. There, he catches the eye of attractive but poor Belle Bennett (as Stella Martin), who is scheming to improve her lot in life. With a pretty dress and landscaping, Ms. Bennett is able to attract Mr. Colman. They are happily married and have a baby daughter. Entering the country club life, Bennett's attempts to appear well-mannered look forced and she alienates other ladies by associating with uncouth horseman Jean Hersholt (as Ed Munn). Colman's work keeps him in New York and Bennett's friends keep her from moving. Meanwhile, their little girl grows into cute Lois Moran (as Laurel "Lollie" Dallas)...

Years pass with Bennett and Colman leading separate lives...

People mistakenly assume Bennett is having an affair with Mr. Hersholt, and gossip causes young Moran to lose friends and be forced into a poorer school. Bennett finally realizes she loves Colman, but it may be too late – he has re-encountered Ms. Joyce, now a wise widow. Moran begins favoring more time with her father and begins to see handsome young Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (as Richard Grosvenor), forcing Bennett to make an unselfish decision about her daughter's future. With keen direction by Henry King and a stellar performance by Bennett, "Stella Dallas" became a big hit with audiences and film critics. Samuel Goldwyn's film was "Quigley Publications" best picture of the year. It was followed by a memorable re-make (with Barbara Stanwyck) and long-running radio series.
