"..John Garfield was the movies' first rebel hero and this was his explosive screen debut..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Oscar-nominated drama stars Oscar-nominee John Garfield ("Gentleman's Agreement") in his feature debut as a rebellious musician whose romance with one of a small-town patriarch's four daughters causes conflict. Co-starring Oscar-winner Claude Rains ("Casablanca"). Followed by two sequels. Nominated for Best Picture, Screenplay and Supporting Actor (Garfield).
Garfield, in his first feature film appearance, portrays the melancholy Borden with mesmerizing intensity, while the role of the family's patriarch, Adam Lemp, is acted with mastery and magnetism by Claude Rains. Priscilla Lane sparkles as the youngest sister, Ann, and May Robson perfectly embodies the perpetually fussy Aunt Etta. The wonderfully acted film inspired the sequels DAUGHTERS COURAGEOUS, FOUR WIVES, and FOUR MOTHERS, as well as the remake YOUNG AT HEART.
- The picture had its premiere September 24, 1938. Production took place between April 18th and June 4th, 1938.
- John Garfield made his major screen debut in "Four Daughters." However, several years earlier Garfield appeared in a bit part in "Footlight Parade."
- Originally Warner Bros. assigned the part of "Felix Deitz" to Errol Flynn. But when Flynn became ill, the part was assigned to Jeffrey Lynn.
- Film was remade in 1954 as "Young at Heart," starring Frank Sinatra, directed by Gordon Douglas.
