    miss hayward is so good it's almost unbelievable this film as well as all of her films should be shown every couple months heavans knows you show many much lessor films every day please play miss haywards films more often like my foolish heart. susan takes an ordinary film and by power of her presence makes that film much better than the material it is.please play her more often she was and because of the images on film still is outstanding she is a woman most men wish they had for their own please play miss hayward more often.

    Feeling very tired I decided to do what I love best which is to lie back and watch a classic movie. This one I have never heard of before. Haven't yet seen a lot of Susan Hayward films. As it began I didn't feel too impressed and wasn't sure if I'd keep watching. By the time they got married and had their daughter it was almost SO boring I thought, WHO could write such a boring story? I'm so glad I kept on watching. Never would I have guessed what was about to happen. I didn't have a clue as to what this movie was about. It got so good and I found myself so mesmerized by this woman that I actually felt her pain which is what good movies can do. The funny thing is that as SOON as this movie ended my phone rang and I was afraid to answer, it took me a moment to realize that I wasn't the one who was drunk but had just watched someone do a super job portraying it!

    Wow, this was a really good movie. I had never heard of it before and I highly recommend it. Susan Hayward was wonderful in this role, as she is in everything I have ever seen her in. Susan was so good at playing roles of tough women, but in this film she is also tender and touching and you are rooting for her all the way. Some of her scenes made me so nervous, not knowing of course what embarrassment she might cause to herself or those who loved and cared for her. I know this may sound weird, but I was talking to the movie and saying "Don't do it Susan, or what are you going to do now Susan?" The scene between Susan and her husband's secretary, Martha, is worth the price of the ticket, so to speak.I love Susan Hayward. I agree with David in that she was tough, a real broad (compliment), beautiful, glamorous, talented and with a sexy, deep throttled voice that was to die for. She died way too young, before age 60, from cancer. I will watch anything that she is in.

  • Miss Hayward Should Have Won!

    Roz Russell was favored to win the Oscar for her perf in 'Mourning Becomes Electra', but that grand lady lost to her best friend Loretta Young for the wonderful'Farmers Daughter'. Both performances are fine but that years best was Susan Hayward in her first of her eventual 5 nominations in "Smash Up" Likely Susan had not developed a following on the voting members as she was the newest and youngest of the 5 nominees.Susan was contracted to Walter Wagner who groomed her the way David Selznick groomed Jennifer Jones, and Ingrid Bergman in their movies. And Susan who had alot to give, gave it all she had in this great movie.Susan was a great movie star and had a great following and employed as all great stars do a fair amount of tricks or mannerisms that became Her trademarks. However in this movie, the great Susie was very natural and was totally believeable. A memorable portrait. Years later when Susan finally won her much deserved Oscar on her 5th try for her great " I Want To Live" she thanked only one person other than her Family, and that one person was Mr. Walter Wanger, whom she said "Without whom none of this would have been possible". I doubt that...Susan's great ability took her to great heights but it is good to know how much Susan valued Walter Wanger.I always hoped that Susan and Wanger would do one more movie after "I Want To Live"...they were a great Star-Producer Team. Wanger told his friend David Selznick that without Susan's bankable name, "I Want To Live" would never have been made.Her likes simply do not exist in today's Hollywood...she was a tough, lady, glamorous, beautiful, warm,honest, and yes as I said Tough.RIP Great Lady

    This was one of Ms. Haywards best films. I love allof her work but she was unforgettable in this movie. I know that she passed away too soon for me, just a great actress and able to play this part so well. I'll Cry Tomorrow is in some ways like this movie. Both great movies. A 5 star movie.
