Rating: B -- Jean Negulseco's melodrama is a moody, well-crafted if outdated saga with a star-making performance from Jane Wyman as a deaf-mute girl, who's raped and bears an illegitimate child. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Try all you want to make yourself jaded over this, but in the end poor little Belinda wins us all over in the end.
Rating: 3/4 -- Wyman delivers an impressive, Oscar-winning performance relying solely on her expressions. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- A touching, moving film that takes its time and doesn't rely on strident melodramatics to tell its story. Full Review
