  • A Wonderful Story. Poignant. Romantic

    A very poignant story of a man who runs away from his job, home, and neglectful family and finds contentment and love, only to be conflicted by his new found happiness and the duty and responsibility he left behind. Very bittersweet and romantic. What fellow wouldn't fall for beautiful Ann Sothern?I saw this many years ago on late night TV when I was very young. I was very taken with the story and am glad to report it is just as good as I remember. With his distinctive voice and intellectual mien, Alexander Knox sometimes seems cold and dry in his roles, but that's typecasting. In this film he shows a quiet humorous charm and yearning that is very appealing and believable.

  • Movie to watch on a rainy day

    This was an OK movie. I actually felt sorry for the man. He went back to a life that he was unhappy with. Although he still acted like a Judge and his wife had changed her way of thinking,he was sad when he went to his front door at the end of the movie. Near the end, the Judge looked into a mirror and he realized that he was an old man and Ann Southern was a young woman. Too young for him.When Southern came towards him, I had hoped that he would say or think "I want to be happy" and go with her but the writers of the movie sent him back to his wife who he just divorced.

  • Very nice film

    Any film with the underated Ann Sothern is well worth seeing, ditto for Alexander Knox (so good in Sea Wolf), when you put them together and add Ian Wolfe and H.B. Warner, among others, Highly recommended.

    A simple, well-acted, sweetly written gem. A man runs away in the Indian summer of his life and finds love in California. I loved it.

  • New York Opening

    The film opened in New York at the Palace Theater on June 3, 1949.
