Movie Info

This drama examines the rivalry between a mother and the daughter she is too vain to acknowledge. The mother is a famous actress who does not want her true age to be known. She, therefore, keeps her 19-year old daughter secreted away in a boarding school. The daughter is too old to be concealed. She wants her own life, and she wants her mother to acknowledge her existence. She goes to New York to see her mother. At her mother's house, the young woman encounters her mother's newest suitor. He sees the young girl and falls for her. The mother becomes terribly jealous and tries to thwart the romance. She fails, and the happy young couple get married.

Critic Reviews for Desirable

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • It's a very simple story, told with feminine deftness and detail; and Miss Muir's sensitive, eager and youthful performance gives the picture unusual charm. Men, however, may feel rather unimportant at it.
