Primrose Path is an incredible film. It is about a girl from the "wrong" side of the tracks who falls in love with an ambitious young man from the "right" side of the tracks. Ginger Rogers and Joel McCrea give fantastic performances. The screenplay is well written. Gregory LaCava did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama. Primrose Path is a must see.

Corny melodrama about a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, Ginger Rogers, getting involved with an up and coming young businessman, Joel McCrea. It's a pretty standard soaper and the only thing to distinguishes it from others of it's ilk is that the film was rather open about Rogers' mother being a prostitute, which was quite controversial at the time. The average material is greatly elevated by the two leads.

Solid dramatic turn from Ginger Rogers, ended up liking this one quite a bit. Rogers and McCrea near the end are a little too horrible to each other to really want them to get back together, but it still works. Also wanted someone to slap the grandmother a little bit - horrible woman.

An old movie on TV during Ginger Rogers movie day. Not at all like her normal dance-with-Fred-Astaire type movies. She plays a young woman who manages to pull herself out of her circumstances only to be dragged back down again. It is hard to believe that such an innocuous movie would have affected the sensibilities off the 1940's censor boards.

Pleasant enough Ginger Rogers romance which is not stand-out, but is well made.

Good performances, especially Marjorie Rambeau and Queenie Vassar. The fine script make this classic a winner. Interesting throughout, solid entertainment.

One of the most perfect romances ever. Ginger gives her absolute finest performance and is great with Joel McCrea.
