Result is a sentimentally sugary flavor which also extends over the romantic portions of the film. There is no comedy relief.
Pretty Technicolor, but the tearjerking is shameless.
With lovely Greer Garson playing the leading role, the spirit of the story is maintained on a level generally above its frequent insipid spots.
It was a noble deed and a noble effort to make a biography about a woman who was virtually unknown outside Texas, but the picture was long, overly teary, and didn't excite too many people at the box office, although it did make money.
Littered with stilted melodrama, wooden dialogue, and over-the-top courtroom showdowns.
One of the weakest films to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, this biopic of Edna Gladney is uncharacteristically poorly scripted by Anita Loos and poorly helmed by Mervyn LeRoy.
So intent on packing as many events as possible into a relatively slim 100 minutes that it can't devote enough time to developing any of them.
This successful weepy revealed Garson's red hair in Technicolor for the first time, but was more significant for being the first of eight films she made with Pidgeon.
Verging on the sappy, perhaps this film was the prototype for all the made-for-TV "inspiring" stories that we are forced to endure. The film appears to be as dated as the prejudices against children born out of wedlock.
