Screenwriter Dalton Trumbo and director Edward Dmytryk were known for their left-wing political beliefs - they were among the infamous "Hollywood Ten" blacklisted during the McCarthy-era anti-Communist hysteria after the war - and Ginger Rogers, a staunch Republican, began noticing what she interpreted to be "anti-American" speeches in her dialog. Upon complaining, the speeches were given to other actresses. See more »
Ok, this movie IS dated but so were most of the films made during the WWII. This is not a major earthshaking film, just a nice little movie. Even if it gets a little preachy.
Ginger Rogers is more muted in this role, not really one of her strongest performances, but she is good. Robert Ryan, her husband in the film, is actually playing a NICE guy here. This film also includes Ruth Hussey, Kim Hunter, Patricia Collinge and Jane Darnell. They are never really used to a great advantage here.
The story is simple enough. These women were left behind by their men who went of to war. They move in together to share expenses and responsibility. They try to run the house democratically but run into problems. If you are looking for a nice little movie to watch, this can be that movie. I do have this in my video collection and have watched it about 3 times.
