Susan Hayward Eats Up This Real Life Tale
Overwrought melodrama detailing the alcoholic spiral of real life entertainer, Lillian Roth. The movie never really hooks you until her decent into alcoholism kicks in. Susan Hayward does an admirable job, but she looks as though she's gunning for an Academy Award (she did get nominated). The movie glosses over major details of Roth's life - including her numerous husbands. This is one of those movies that uses dirt and ripped clothes to emphasize someone's fall from grace. Not terribly convincing, but it achieves its goal of getting the viewer to feel for Hayward's character. The ending is wrapped up way too neatly and discounts the life-altering effects of addiction. Good for a rainy day, but generally forgettable.
Este é um dos melhores filmes de Susan Hayward e certamente um dos mais desafiantes de todos, pois ela interpreta magnificamente bem. En todas as cenas ela está maravilhosa. Uma diva .Este filme é um clássico.
Simply Thank You for I'll Cry Tomorrow!

Channel surfing as I was looking for back ground noise to catch an afternoon nap,I stop as I enjoy watching old movies, especially Susan Hayward. Thought I'd check it out, and came in on the part where she and her mother were going at it in her bedroom. Katie offers her a drink to help her sleep; actually she kept insisting. That was enough for me, and that nap was history! Clued, literally stuck! I too am a friend of BW and no to well the mad relm of alcoholism. Thank first drink! Will take you to to people, places and things that you can never take back! This is certainly a movie that should be offered as a recovery tool! We need to know and see that it's nothing new, has taking some of the best down! And still continues!!! We need more movies like this that speak the truth, and shows the truth leaving out nothing! Thank you to all the cast, and TMC!!! Please notify me whenever this movie is airing. Thank You.
Susan Hayward Superb

Susan Hayward -a 20 Century Fox star-, this film was done at MGM and Susan wanted this role very much, and we should be all glad Miss Hayward prevailed. Susan Hayward is supported by a great cast including the great Jo Van Fleet and Ray Danton. Directed by Daniel Mann- whom Susan would claim to be her favorite director-the story is very blunt and direct. Susan was nominated for a 4th time for this film but lost to Anna Magnani, Miss Hayward did win the Cannes Film Festival Award as Best Actress for her performance and if memory hold correct she was given a 10 minute standing ovation. A note: Susan is one of the few actresses to win the Triple Crown of Acting: The Oscar, The NY Film Critics and the Cannes Film Festival. Susan won her Oscar for her brilliant performance in " I Want To Live" but the great star always considered this film her best performance. Susan Hayward was visited by Garbo just before Susan passed, and was visited also by Katharine Hepburn, and Barbara Stanwyck so well respected was she in Hollywood. RIP Susan
It was the real thing!
