My Reputation Hits A Controversial Theme ****
18 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Barbara Stanwyck's husband dies after a 2 year illness and she is left with sons 12 and 14.

Her mother, placed excellently by Lucile Watson, wants her to wear black and continue to mourn. Within 2 scenes, mother is suggesting that she become more friendly with a family friend- a banker. Watson insists upon wearing black clothes. She marches on screen as if she is Queen Victoria. The best part is that her husband has been dead for 25 years. It is only at the end of the film that Watson offers excellent advice to her daughter and again shows the wonderful character actress traits that made her such a good thespian.

Eve Arden, as a friend of Stanwyck, is given little to do here other than comforting her and getting her to go on vacation with her and her husband only to have George Brent, as Col. Landis, enter the picture. Arden has only one wise-crack remark in this film and that is unusual for her.

Vicious gossip ensues in the town as romance buds. The boys, naturally, are adversely affected by the gossip that will invariably lead to an appropriate ending.

Despite the flaws I mentioned, the film is a good one as it deals with a problem of widowhood and children. The solution given here was quite adequate and with a fine cast, the picture rises above any criticism depicted.
