Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Do you know you haven't said a word since we left the restaurant? You don't talk very much, do you?
I'm a listener. A very important part of society - a listener. Without us, who would the talkers talk to - each other? Talkers don't listen to themselves, much less other talkers.
Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Well, for a listener, that's quite a lot of gab!
I may not say anything again until... June 14!

Shirley Booth, brings tearjerker to new heights, credible!
About Mrs Leslie,in less credible hands,would have been just another average 1950's tearjerker,but in the hands of (Oscar) winning actress "Shirley Booth" the film crosses the boundary, from maudlin to interesting. Anyone familiar with Booth's acting genius, knows that the actress could have made a film about the invention of the "pencil sharpener" worth watching. It could be said, and rightfully so that 'Robert Ryan" was miscast, as Mr. Leslie, but if given a chance, I believe you'll gladly overlook Paramount's little casting error. All in all, About Mrs Leslie, isn't "Shirley Booth's" greatest moment, but she still had reason to crow! I highly reccomend this dramatization of "Vina Delmars" best selling novel of the same name.
