Near the end of the film, Cliff bumps the toy robot on the table, starting it walking towards the camera and he walks back to the shop window.

It's funny. I'm positive your father hasn't done a thing to be ashamed of, but, you know something, I wouldn't blame him if he had.

It's always a pleasant surprise to encounter an 'oldie' movie such as this. As for first impressions, I have the feeling it's an idealist's wished-for 'dream of a perfect world and perfect people' that never quite comes true, unfortunately, for many in real life. At times the story seemed a bit too melodramatic and predictable at every turn yet even so I enjoyed it
Barbara Stanwyck as Norma is always able to carry a dramatic role superbly. Fred MacMurray as Clifford certainly does give a true rendering of a situation many married men find themselves in sooner or later, of facing middle age and the feeling of being boxed in on all sides.
Well worth adding this one to your collection.
