All I Desire Reviews
While this is interesting, it seems a bit low-brow for such a pro as Stanwyck. You can easily see her rise above this material. Good for a chuckle at least.
Good old fashioned melodrama with a wonderful Barabra Stanwyck at her most likeable. Though the plot offers few surprises and is quite contrived at times, Ms Stanwyck is worth the watching.
Stanwyck plays a vetran Vaudville stage performer who returns home to her family after having abandoned them ten years earlier. Her appearance opens old wounds and excites old flames.
An averagely successful actress in her late 40s has been apart from her family for years pursuing and continuing her career far away. When she gets a letter from her teen daughter requesting mother to come back to see her debut in a high school play, she decides to go back and see her estranged family. But years after time apart, some wounds can't easily heal (possible spoiler there...)
with bright cast , as the most movies of Sirk
Crazy Douglas ratchets up the insane interior of small-time life until everyone just goes mad with happiness. Barbara Stanwyck, as always, rules like nobody's business.
