When Robert Young and Dorothy Malone leave in the car from their home. A large dog barks and follows them around the corner and behind the garage. But doesn't come out the other side of the garage. Makes you wonder why the dog was there in the first place. See more »
I'm not sure why I was disappointed with this film. Maybe because it was too stage-y or maybe it was Dorothy McGuire's performance or maybe it was because, when you get right down to it, the 3 basic themes of the film have all been handled better in other films. To me, the script seemed contrived.
Robert Young's performance is the opposite of Dorothy McGuire's - she is unconvincing and overacts at every opportunity (and there were lots of opportunities), while he gave a nice, nuanced performance filled with genuine emotion. I found Ms. McGuire's character and performance annoying to the nth degree. Had this film not gotten good reviews, I never would have watched it all the way through. The best scenes were when Ina Claire and Robert Young were interacting.
Maybe it's a chick film and that's why I didn't find myself enjoying it as much as I anticipated.
