How far should a woman go...to redeem the man she loves?

Washed up singer/actor Frank Elgin has a chance to make a come-back when director Bernie Dodd offers him the leading role in his new musical. Frank however is very insecure, turns to alcohol and shuns even the smallest of responsibilities, leaving everything up to his wife Georgie who finds it harder and harder to cope with her husband's lack of spirit. Bernie tries to help Frank regain his self-confidence, believing that it is Georgie who's the cause of his insecurity.

Member Reviews

  • Good!

  • Excellent performances from Holden, Kelly and Crosby. Intelligently written from play by Clifford Odets, and directed with restraint and precision.

  • Not impressed

  • Fine performances, literate script and involving story. Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby give standout performances. Really top viewing.
