I loved this film, mainly because I love Susan Hayward. She is so beautiful and her acting is superb.
25 October 1999 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie because of Susan Hayward. But it is a good story, set in beautiful country. Stephen Boyd shows his devotion to both the mother and the son. The story line is beautiful and although it is somewhat flowery, it is believable. This is one of those memorable movies that one wants to see time and time again. And I have.
