Storyline

Mrs. Leslie, rooming house landlady, reminisces in flashbacks about her past as a cafe entertainer and her involvement with the mysterious George Leslie, who originally hires her as a vacation "companion" but tells her nothing of his life outside the vacations. In subplots, Mrs. Leslie's tenants and neighbors carry on soap-opera lives. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Shirley Booth, brings tearjerker to new heights, credible!
24 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

About Mrs Leslie,in less credible hands,would have been just another average 1950's tearjerker,but in the hands of (Oscar) winning actress "Shirley Booth" the film crosses the boundary, from maudlin to interesting. Anyone familiar with Booth's acting genius, knows that the actress could have made a film about the invention of the "pencil sharpener" worth watching. It could be said, and rightfully so that 'Robert Ryan" was miscast, as Mr. Leslie, but if given a chance, I believe you'll gladly overlook Paramount's little casting error. All in all, About Mrs Leslie, isn't "Shirley Booth's" greatest moment, but she still had reason to crow! I highly reccomend this dramatization of "Vina Delmars" best selling novel of the same name.
