Movie Info

This acclaimed biopic tells the cautionary tale of Broadway star Lillian Roth (Susan Hayward), who by the age of 20 has risen to fame due to the efforts of her pushy mother. Though a success on stage, Lillian has her hopes of happiness dashed when her fiancé dies tragically, and responds to her loss by drinking. Alcoholism and a string of failed marriages destroy Lillian's career and ultimately leave her destitute. After a brush with death, however, Lillian resolves to return to the spotlight.

    Susan Hayward is rightfully lauded for her performance, although it's tough to buy her in the role of a teen in the first half of the movie. The film runs a little too long, but when Eddie Albert appears in the last third his performance is especially noteworthy.

    Susan Hayward seemed to relish these roles on the edge of what was expected in American cinema in the 50s. Here is the no holds barred biopic of Lillian Roth that raised the bar for biography films to an unprecedented level.

    1950's bio-pic about the rise and fall (and rise) of actress/singer Lillian Roth. A melodramatic take on alcoholism that rivals <i>The Lost Weekend</i>. Okay, there were a few moments when the sap was thick enough to draw flies, but overall one hell of a performance from the vivacious Miss H. A must-see for Susan Hayward fans of all ages.

    Sad story but Susan Hayward's powerhouse performance holds you from beginning to end.
