Decent Melodrama, If Sentimental at Times
25 September 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good melodrama, mostly believable and with pretty good characters. Most of the time it maintains a decent balance, only occasionally becoming a bit too sentimental or heavy-handed. The main character's career as a milliner is worked into the story in some useful and interesting ways.

Ann Harding plays Vergie, who is in love with a married politician played by John Boles. A few of the developments and characters' attitudes reflect the era in which the film was made, but the primary dilemmas faced by the two leads would be largely the same in any setting. There are quite a few secondary characters, and some are extraneous, but some of them are good additions to the story. The supporting cast includes some good character actors (and watch also for an uncredited but amusing appearance by Walter Brennan).

It moves fairly quickly, and the story has enough to hold your interest and make it worth a look if you're interested in a somewhat sentimental story.
