  • Great storyline!

    I don't know how it happened but Mary Astor, once again and as always, plays the witch! (The only film I can think of wherein she portrayed a good person is "Dodsworth" and she was sensational in that film!) Astor is a minor player in this film, the leader of a group of catty gossips, as it belongs solely to Spencer Tracy and Lana Turner, along with the typically smarmy Zachary Scott (another actor who always played a vile person!). I've viewed this film many times over the years and I still enjoy both Tracy and Turner here, as they play well off one another. Even though there is a visibly discernible age difference in the two, it is fairly easy to accept them as the lonely widower and the woman who sees the goodness in him even though she doesn't fully realize he is the father figure she had been searching for. The small town girl marries and finds herself in yet another small town and one in which she is completely ostracized by the country club set to which her husband belongs. She falls head over heels for the cad (Scott) who, after she has left her husband, tells her he isn't interested in her as a wife. Her making her way back to her marriage and to her husband is the crux of the film and is a lesson in good vs. bad choices we make during life's journey. Well worth watching!

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! Probes the depths of human motivations and the degree to which we often make choices without fully understanding ourselves and the consequences of our choices. Even the best people (as portrayed by Tracy & Turner) can screw their lives up pursuing what they thought were good motives... yet redemption is always possible for those willing to re-examine their lives to make different choices. Excellent performances from both Tracy and Turner.

    The first time this movie was on TCM I did not have the capability of seeing it. It is one of my all time favorites. I would love to see it again now that I have the capability.

    When will TCM show this movie again? You have shown it and another Lana Turner Movie, Homecoming, in the past.
