A lonely woman is anxious to marry her long-time fiancé, whose mother she's never even met. She waited through his military service in the Korean War, the mother's illness, all the while worried that her younger, wealthier fiancé will find someone who's his equal. How long must the less educated woman wait to move from her small, furnished apartment to his family's mansion - and why the delay ? Written by David Stevens

Keeps You Guessing
17 November 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

The title sounds a little lightweight, but the story is not. Sweetly wholesome Helen (Bel Geddes) tells in flashback about her long, frustrating engagement to rich boy Philip (Dubbins). It's one excuse after another that puts off their wedding day, yet all appear to revolve around Philip's imperious mom. Helen keeps trying to meet mom, but there too, it's one excuse after another. So what's going on, since Philip seems such a nice sincere boy.

With the many conversations, an entry like this depends greatly on effective acting. Fortunately, Bel Geddes, a series favorite, excels at this type role, while newcomer Dubbins is also excellent. Together, they keep interest on high, even though the entry's basically a one-note plot— just what is going on with mom. Then too, any resemblance here to a well-known Hitchcock movie is not, I suspect, strictly a coincidence.
