End of an era!
28 September 2000 | by (Los Angeles, California, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is significant in motion picture history for two reasons. The first is that it is the final feature film appearance of Loretta Young. After this, Loretta only made television appearances. The second is that this is the last film ever made by Gladys George, who died the next year (1954).
