Fourth and final pairing of Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray. It's a midlife crisis soaper from director Douglas Sirk about a man (MacMurray) who feels neglected by his wife (Joan Bennett) and kids. When he meets old flame Stanwyck, sparks fly. When his kids find out, it naturally causes problems. Well-directed with some nice photography from Russell Metty. The visuals help make a routine story a little more interesting. But still, it's just that: routine. This is not the kind of movie that I would watch more than once. The performances are all fine but I just found it rather dull. Still, Stanwyck and MacMurray fans will want to check it out.
