Description by OLDIES.com:
Beautiful, English-born Frieda Inescort gives a riveting emotional performance as a woman whose heart is torn by deeply conflicted desires. Today she is best remembered by film audiences as Merle Oberon's competition for Lawrence Olivier's affections in 1940's Pride and Prejudice. Dignified Otto Kruger had a long and prolific career as a character actor in such great films as Saboteur (1942), High Noon (1952), and Magnificent Obsession (1954).
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 4 ratings.
Consider the ingredients in this story. A womam torn in her loyalties between her former fiancee, now wellchair bound for a number of years following a tragic accident, and a sympathetic man who can give her the whole life she craves in marriage. A very appealing child involved in a tug of war between two adults. Handled differently, it might have been an exercise in scmalzy theatrics. Instead, performances by pros like Otto Kruger, Frieda Innescourt and Donald Douglas put it over successfully and compellingly. Even the child, Ann Todd, is completely believable and does not cloy. The conclusion, though we might have seen it a long way off, is not inevitable, as we are kept in suspense to the very end over which man Frieda will choose. For its age (70 years), the print and sound quality of this picture are amazingly good.
