attempt at copying the Gainsborough films from England
This American attempt to copy the style and contents of those British Gainsborough period pieces starring the likes of James Mason, Stewart Granger, Margaret Lockwood and Phyllis Calvert among others.. Only this time the coast of Maine is standing in for Cornwall, beautiful and wasted Ella Raines stands in for Margaret Lockwood, the not so memorable Robert Hutton is replacing either Mr Mason or Mr Granger and Phyllis Calvert is standing in for Phyllis Calvert in her first of only a few unsuccessful American movies. It's another period piece about a rich American family and a beloved servant who endears herself to them and the beautiful but nasty rich woman who marries into the family. The oxygen is supplied in support by the now forgotten stunning Miss Helena Carter of INVASION FROM MARS fame. She with her striking good looks and overly sophisticated voice adds a bit of nastiness and snobbery to the whole proceedings as that rich nasty woman. But the film just doesn't work.
