In pre-World War II London, Ernie Mott (Cary Grant), a Cockney layabout whose father was killed during World War I, learns that his mother, Ma (Miss Ethel Barrymore), is dying of cancer. In an effort to relieve his mother from the strain of running her shop on her own, Ernie pledges to help her with the business.

    Cary Grant against type is a limit in terms of being believable. His own efforts deserve merits but the rest of the film leaves you a bit wanting.

    This could have been a great drama, but Grant doesn't give us a great performance, maybe he felt a little too comfortable back at home in England or something? I don't know, but this movie is lacking something, and I found it really boring.

    This is a decent drama starring Cary Grant. Grant plays a drifter that returns home to visit his mother. He is about to leave again when he learns she has cancer. He stays and helps her run her shop. But this drifter is in need of money and goes in with the wrong gang. Cary Grant is excellent as usual in his role. He was nominated for a Oscar in Best Actor in a Leading Role category for his role in this. Hard to believe this was his last nomination for a Oscar considering his great movies and performances after this film. The story is great and the acting great throught out this film. Top mention to Ethel Barrymore and June Duprez in their roles. They were excellent as well. This is not one of my favorite Cary Grant movies overall with the body of work he has done. But this is still worth a watch for Grant fans or those looking for a solid drama to watch.

    Ernie (played by Cary Grant) has to turn over a new leaf when he learns his mother has cancer. Now that he is stuck in town, he has to deal with making a living and keeping his girlfriend happy. The movie is somewhat depressing as in this era, it is almost impossible to make a living legally, so there is always the lure of illegal activities.
