  • 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.

    March 25, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A magnificent movie made from the biography of this exemplary lady (Edna Gladney). [Full review in Spanish]

    September 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 31, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Littered with stilted melodrama, wooden dialogue, and over-the-top courtroom showdowns.

Audience Reviews for Blossoms in the Dust

  • Jul 16, 2013
    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.
