For Pete's sake, have mercy on Dad -- especially if you are contemplating taking him to see this film.
It's as suffocating a portrait of suburban middle class life as the you'll find in fifties cinema and Stanwyck is the flame that casts everything else into shadow.
Its title seems appropriate for a soap opera.
Stylish drama acted expertly by super professionals. The powerful duo of Stanwyck and MacMurray excel when paired together and this is a fine example of that. Sadly this film is somewhat obscure.A shame since it really does examine in simple terms the crisis a man faces when he realizes he has fallen into a rut without being aware of it. Another winner from Sirk and perhaps even better then some of his better known films, which are certainly enjoyable if sometimes over the top and a little lurid, since the drama is muted and closer to real life.
