Perpetually petulant Ann Blythe plays a middle-class girl who discovers a big family secret on her 18th birthday. Surprisingly, a few of the scenes are not 100% predictable and, occasionally, a character behaves in a way or says something that you haven't seen 1000 times in movies of this era. This must have been the movie that won Jane Wyatt her iconic role as the wife in Father Knows Best. By the time that series came around,she had it all down pat. My favorite character from the movie was ZaZa, Blythe's shallow but affluent best friend. ZaZa actually made you feel more sorry for her than you did for the main character! And she was the rich, pretty one! Did anyone else feel that Blythe was too old for this part? It's a perfectly fine melodrama with some surprises - not too many, though.
