Good Jane Wyman Film
9 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jane Wyman is "Lucy Gallant," who goes to new territory to set up in business and sell women's clothes - to be her own woman, to stand on her own two feet. But when Charlton Heston set his eyes on her, he fell in love with her and wanted her for himself. By the way, he doesn't like these "independent women." He is both attracted to and dismayed by her being cool to him in the beginning. But he is just as determined as she is. Claire Trevor, Thelma Ritter, and William Demarest all give good support, but this film belongs to Ms. Wyman, who gives the role both her vulnerability and firm resolve. "Lucy Gallant" is a harder-to-find film of hers than others. And, while it may seen rather predictable and not that much original in concept, its production values and good actors make up for it. Ms. Wyman's likable disposition invites the viewer to spend time with her and we never lose interest in her world as she tries to make a go of it and having to deal with Charlton's passes at her. Will she succumb to his advances? Will she triumph over tragedies that befall her business? You'll only learn, if you enter the world of "Lucy Gallant."
