A warm glow
5 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joseph Pevney, a top Universal director in the fifties, when he worked with such luminaries as James Cagney, Joan Crawford and Debbie Reynolds, exhibits cinematic flair and sound judgment as he guides young Tim Matheson through a challenging role in this cuddly little story that casts a warm glow. Jim Horn's attraction to a pregnant abandoned wife (played by girl-next-door dreamboat Darleen Carr) spirals into an emotional bond after he assists her delivery. He thinks the compassion he's feeling must be true love. But is it really? Pevney's tasteful direction and Matheson's believable confusion keep the viewer engaged.
