1 star - spoiler alert
The ending was a total disappointment to me - why would they burn something so important, and he would continue to take the blame forever, when it could prove he was innocent? I was glad when this one was over. The only bright spot was the couple who finally got together to stay. And he sure needs her to speak up for him, since he can't seem to speak for himself. I have always liked Walter Pidgeon but this role was a dud. Movie gets 1 star for effort.

Nothing wrong with this movie that a good dose of ambiguity wouldn't cure. As it is we're stuck with a world of saints (Walter Pidgeon, Janet Leigh, Deborah Kerr) who are of course a bore, and sinners (Angela Lansbury, Binnie Barnes, Reginald Owen) who, while a bit more entertaining, don't do much for the ol believability quotient.The only character who is a credible combo of vice and virtue, Hugh French's raffish, weak, charming and devoted husband of Kerr, is only onscreen for a minute and dies off! Give it a C.
The author of the letter.
Effie not Harold wrote the letter confessing that Harold was the father of her baby.
If Winter Comes
- Tim Tuohy
love those modest old English films...black and white.
This is number 42 in my quest to see all of Deborah Kerr's films. I actually had to get up at 5 a.m. to watch it on TCM. This was an okay film. Not a great cinamatic masterpiece, but a good entertaining film. Angela Lansbury was a force to be reckoned with. Boy, it's hard to believe that "Jessica Fletcher" was once a tough broad back in the day. I found it very interesting that she often seemed to be playing women twice her age in her earlier films. It was so unfair seeing how lovely she was in her youth. This wasn't one of Deborah Kerr's best films, but she still managed to be quite lovely. She worked with what she was given. There was one scene where she wore a gorgeous black dress and just looked absolutely stunning. I've been struck by how often this lovely actress was paired with men nearly twice her age. For me it is a distraction except for the three films she made with Cary Grant. The fact that they were good friends in real life always came through on the screen and their genuine playfulness is a joy to watch.Janet Leigh was also quite lovely as "Effie Bright." I was surprised by how authentic her accent sounded.I'm not really familiar with Walter Pidgeon's work. I saw him in "Dream Wife", but his role was quite small. Also, when you're a man in a film with Cary Grant, well, need I say more? In this film, however, he did a capable job, but the age difference between him and all three women in his life was very apparent. At the time, he was 50, Angela Lansbury was 22 even though she was heavily made up, Deborah Kerr was ancient compared to the other two at 26 and Janet Leigh was only 20, which was okay seeing that she wasn't a love interest. At that point in his career, being paired with Irene Dunne or Myrna Loy would have felt more authentic as they were closer to his age.All in all, it was worth watching and I'd recommend it for 90 minutes of mindless entertainment.
A great film ...
Typically underated in general views, this is a touching film with an excellent cast. A quality and message that we don't often find today. I do hope it comes out in DVD!!!Cloe

Excellent film. The tension is riveting and the yearning portrayed by Kerr and Pidgeon is very seductive.

I loved this movie, it shows what can happen when someone trys to help and others look through a dirty glass.The Bible says never let your good be evil spoken of. So one must be careful how they help.This movie should be on DVD
