Audience Reviews for My Foolish Heart

  • Jan 15, 2014
    Just a tad bit too silly to be considered seriously. This is apparently a Salinger adaptation and Salinger was none too pleased with the result. I wouldn't be either.

    Sentimental wartime drama with Susan Hayward strong in the lead, she was Oscar nominated. Dana Andrews is fine as her love interest but the strongest supporting performance comes from Robert Keith as Susan's father This includes a scene that is surprisingly frank for the times dealing with hasty wartime marriages and the realities once the war is over. Based on the only J.D. Salinger story he ever allowed to be adapted, he hated the results, it's not a great film but certainly an enjoyable one particularly if you're a Hayward fan.
