Sweet, sentimental romantic drama about a good man who sincerely loves his wife but who's gambling addiction continually sabotages their relationship. The first 20 minutes or so is fun and engaging meet-cute romantic comedy, but then the movie turns dark.
In 2014 the film became available for the first time on DVD in it's original length. After initial release in 1947, had only been seen rarely and in a heavily edited version. The DVD image and sound are fairly good; it looks to be a new video transfer made from a decent quality archival print.
The production looks surprisingly plush, given it was made for Republic Pictures.
I found the film well acted, especially by Don Ameche, whose unusual for him, calm and underplayed performance made the story a lot more credible than it would have been otherwise. The female lead gave a believable performance, but lacked star quality that would have made her character's tribulations more watchable.
Unfortunately, I found the film slow moving and overly sentimental. I became bored, especially with the overly repetitious plot.
