Director: Rudolph Mate
Summary: Rudolph Mate directs this sentimental melodrama about a ridiculously self-sacrificing wife based on the book by Ruth Southard and starring a 12-year-old Natalie Wood. Mary Scott (Margaret Sullavan) is... read more pregnant when she finds out that she has terminal cancer with only a few months left to live. She keeps this information a secret from her husband, Brad Scott (Wendell Corey), who is carrying on an affair with his assistant, Chris Radna (Viveca Lindfors).
My Thoughts: "A beautiful story about a strong mother and wife who struggles in silence with her disease and the acceptance that she is dying. Her husband Brad is fascinated by Chris and even starts a somewhat affair with her which infuriates you but you also believe that he's absolutely in love with his wife. Instead of ripping into Brad like a wife these days would, she sees this as an opportunity for Brad to be happy after she is gone, and sees Chris as someone who may be a good mother to her young Polly. Chris is not someone you will hate even though you want too. Great story."
