A woman secretly suffering from kleptomania is hypnotized in an effort to cure her condition. Soon afterwards, she is found at the scene of a murder with no memory of how she got there and seemingly no way to prove her innocence.
Commercial artist Daisy Kenyon is involved with married lawyer Dan O'Mara, and hopes someday to marry him, if he ever divorces his wife Lucille. She meets returning veteran Peter, a decent and caring man, whom she does not love, but who offers her love and a more hopeful relationship. She marries him... just as Dan gets a divorce. Written by

One of the most enjoyable of the genre. Joan Crawford as Daisy is at the peak of her '40s films. Henry Fonda in a quirky romantic role, a returned service man with a few issues to get through. Dana Andrews as the cad, never better. In fact of the 3 leads, his is the most interesting interpretation - of a brilliant man who is unable to keep his family man and Romeo side affair balanced. When it topples, he is the one left in a heap of rubble. A most satisfying ladies matinee film (and I mean that as a recommendation.) I give it a 9/10.
