Moving romance with solid performances... the good old kind!
23 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I happened to see it today on TCM and am glad I did (I actually remembered I had already seen it). Eleanor Parker is lovely and nuanced in this one, and as the previous comments say, her chemistry with Dennis Morgan was terrific. Morgan was a much better actor than many of his roles. Dane Clark and Faye Emerson were also better-than-average performers who always made a mark in their films. The dysfunctional family situation is surprisingly straightforward for its time. And the philandering sister is handled with finesse by Andrea King, another reliable supporting star at Warners throughout the 40s and 50s.... All in all, a good time at the movies... and it still holds up after 62 years.
