In this family saga, Mrs. Parkington recounts the story of her life, beginning as a hotel maid in frontier Nevada where she is swept off her feet by mine owner and financier Augustus Parkington. He moves them to New York, tries to remake her into a society woman, and establishes their home among the wealthiest of New York's high society. Family and social life is not always peaceful, however, and she guides us, in flashbacks, through the rises and falls of the Parkington family fortunes. Written by

Did You Know?
Some cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Ann Codee
(Madame Dupont), George Davis
(French Policeman) and Frank Reicher
(French Doctor). It is possible that their scenes, if filmed at all, were only for the European version (see alternate versions), since their character names suggests a French setting. A contemporary news item also listed Donna Reed
, Nana Bryant
and Dewey Robinson
as cast members, but they were not seen in the movie. See more
At the very beginning of the movie, when the carolers are on Mrs. Parkington's doorstep, the girl in the white coat standing on the step next to the butler is not singing "Silent Night" as the rest are. She is obviously singing something completely different (which of course makes the dubbing over completely obvious!) See more

Well, what do you think of us? We're quite a family, don't you think? This is my wife Helen and my son Jack.
Well, you'll have to go some to catch up with us. We've been married 23 years now and no regrets, have we darling?
It's a little late for regrets.
