Description by OLDIES.com:
In 1938, Four Daughters packed movie palaces, making a star out of John Garfield and winning hearts with its appealing depiction of the Lemps, a family that shares an unshakeable bond between parent and child, sister and sister. In 1939 the Lemps were back (Garfield's character, who died in the earlier film, makes a ghostly appearance) for another tender drama of everyday life. This time, all the sisters wed -- even widowed Ann finds marital happiness -- and joyfully prepare for the tears and laughter of motherhood. Returning Four Daughters talent includes the original cast, director Michael Curtiz, scripter Julius J. Epstein (this time working with his brother Philip G.) and Max Steiner, who provides another splendid score.
In this drama, the sequel to FOUR DAUGHTERS, the daughters are now adults. Three of the sisters rally together to find a new love for the fourth sister whose husband recently committed suicide. The widowed woman then discovers that she is pregnant with her deceased husband's child and this causes her to refuse a marriage proposal. At the same time, another sister learns that she is barren, one sister adopts and then finds herself carrying twins, and a different sister gets married. All are very happy except for the pregnant widow who bears her child prematurely. The baby is saved by a blood transfusion from her recently rejected suitor, and the grateful mother promptly elopes with the gallant chap.
