A permanent impression
13 September 1999 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A remarkable performance of young Ann Blyth, which caused an everlasting impression of superb acting and sweet beauty, which transmitted, in the same 50's, a smooth overall portrait on the mid-century style of the american family way of life and the behavior of their youngsters, specially to non-american viewers.
