USA Today - 09/10/2004
"[A] still-absorbing drama..."

"[T]he real value of this film lies in Shirley Booth, whose flawless, heart-tearing performance is worth every square inch of the Best Actress Oscar she won for giving it."

Description by

Based on William Inge's classic play, Come Back, Little Sheba is the stirring tale of a life-weary couple who rescue hope from the ruins of the past. Shirley Booth stars in an Academy Award-winning performance as Lola, slovenly housewife to Doc Delaney (Burt Lancaster), a recovering alcoholic. The Delaneys' life is dull and unchanging, but takes a dramatic turn when the couple take in a charming boarder, Marie (Terry Moore). Marie becomes the daughter the Delaneys never had. But when Marie takes up with a boorish boyfriend, Doc descends into a jealous tailspin and must once again face the temptations of the bottle. An unforgettable film shimmering with life-truths and dramatic intensity that also nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Film Editing.

Product Description:

An attractive female boarder (Terry Moore) stirs the barely-hidden seeds of contempt between a tired, disappointed housewife (Shirley Booth) and her washed-up, alcoholic doctor husband (Burt Lancaster). Great performances bring William Inge's intense 1950 stage play of broken dreams and marital resentment to life on the big screen, garnering Booth a well-deserved Academy Award for Best Actress and a nomination for Moore as Best Supporting Actress.

Plot Synopsis:

A couple, none too gracefully settled into middle age, find their lives irreparably changed when they take in a lovely new lodger. The wife suffers from the knowledge that her husband is enamored of the young girl, while he finds himself tormented by the lodger's sexual involvement with another man.
