My Foolish Heart
- Ron S.
The kind of romantic drama Hollywood has forgotten how to make. Beautiful cast, involving story, touching and appealing on all levels.
- Yvonne King
I loved this film the stars Dana Andrews & Lovely Susan Hayward were perfect in the parts they played no embarrassing love scenes just Pure Romance. Ooh the good old days I am 82 now but remember it so well & the theme song is still one of my favourite songs. Yvonne King
my foolish heart
- brendan kinsella
the movie my foolish heart is still my favourite film and i often still sing the song i think that movie was under rated by the so called know all;s
A Wonderful Romantic Movie
Thank you TCM for scheduling this movie. I think it is one of the most romantic movies with two superb actors, Dana Andrews and Susan Hayward. Robert Keith, who plays Eloise's father is a joy. There are serious issues in the movie, but the movie handles them well. One of my favorites.
Fabulous Susan Hayward!
As a young girl I was awed by Susan Hayward's performances. I've not seen this film in many years and have postedd requests to TCM many times. Someone IS reading these requests. Thanks TCM. New audiences to this film will root for Hayward and Dana Andrews. Those who are skeptical about romantic films will find themselves drawn into the characters and the ago-old story of a woman dealing with an out-of-wedlock pregnancy. The title song, "My Foolish Heart" has the same impact that "Laura" had for that film. TCM, please show more of Ms. Hayward's films. She deserves to be rediscovered. "Backstreet" is such a worthy find. I think audiences will compare Hayward to Bette Davis. Thank you again, TCM!
My Foolish Heart
This has been a favorite film of mine since the first time I saw it....way back in the 70's. It may seem dated, but there is something timeless and touching. "I could have been the girl in the brown and white dress. Anyone could have."
Este filme é ótimo. A susan Hayward está fascinante, talentosa e linda neste filme.

Generation morality gap
- dennis sculimbrene
Thanks to someone making a tape of this film, I was able to enjoy an old film that otherwise is not available on DVD. It should be, but its dated morality makes this film hard to understand by most people born in the 60's. When I went to college, there were separate dorms. Today the sexes are on the same floors. Having a child out of wedlock, as my generation called Susan Hayward's condition, was a real problem with parents, let alone society. Aborton, so obvious a solution today, was probably not mentioned due to censorship codes of the time. The best thing for anyone wanting to see this terrific love story, is to request that it be played on TCM. Hayward's performance as a country girl from Boise, Idaho attending college in NYC is perfect. She meets a perfectly charming Dana Andrews, who plays a man who could be from any generation. He's looking for pretty girls for the same obvious reasons from any generation. What makes the story great is the way the romance developes. Hayward's character is swept off her feet, while Andrews is less willing to commit. Here is where the generational gap occurs. Sex without love is accepted. When this film was made, the idea of sex outside of mariage was not socially acceptable, however widely spread that it was in my generation. This circumstance gives the plot and love story its momentum. Andrews gradually comes to understand that he loves Hayward. This all happens during WWII, and Andrews is conveniently killed in an aircraft crash as he departs for combat. Hayward's character is left a problem-she is pregnant, and unmarried. To solve her 1945 problem, she gets a former beaux to marry her. What makes this flic great is the film begins with Hayward's appearance as a lush, terrible parent and unloving and decietful wife. But the flashback to when Hayward first meets Andrews and events leading up to the film's begining make this a great film.
Why is this not on home video???
I'll never understand the decision making process re releasing classic films on video, especially a gem like this. While it can be argued that both Hayward and Andrews were too old for the parts, they were such good actors that you soon forget the questionable casting. Back in the day when contract players HAD to do any role assigned to them, it made them work hard at their craft unlike today's pale cadre of so-called "stars." I wish TCM would show this more often.
my foolish heart
A true tearjerker with superb cast!!! Susan Heyward and Dana Andrews in a sweet and poignant love story that leaves you heartbroken and crying. What a great movie!!! They just don't make them like this anymore. You MUST see!!!!!
I saw this movie many years ago when I was a teenager at a friend's home. Her mother was watching it and I watched and fell in love with Dana Andrews and Susan Heyward. I have only seen it once more as an adult and am saddened that it is not on DVD for purchase. This is the best love story, revenge and sacrifice movie I have ever seen. Susan Heyward was outstanding. Everything was perfect for the movie, the actors, the music, everything.
I loved this movie!!!
- Lil Allie
I am still crying from the last time I saw this movie. What a love story. Please, please put this on DVD.
Ultimiate Sacrific-First Love Always
- Cathy Gerardi
I saw this movie twice and still can not get it out of my head. The love between two people, the war, the friends and sacrifices each make and the loneliness of a woman's secret had my tears strimming down my face. I get an "ache" in my heart when I think of Susan and Dana. You must see this to experience the love and passion they shared. All of this comes to you in Black & White. One of the best love story ever!
This was one of my favorite mpovies
