I have always enjoyed movies featuring Jean Simmons,and her part in Home Before Dark was excellent.Even though this film was slow paced I liked it very much and would like to add it to my collection. This movie was viewed on television years ago but never again.It was no worse than other films of this type but are shown over and over.
