The most satisfying film I saw in 2016. Exactly what storytelling needs to be: tears you apart and heals you.

To Each His Own is a captivating film. It is about an unwed mother who is forced to give up her child to avoid scandal. Olivia De Havilland and John Lund give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written and touching. Mitchell Leisen did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and romance.

Olivia de Havilland's excellent performance elevates this soppy tale of hot potato with babies. She is quietly devastating as she watches her only son grow up in somebody else's hands, never to know that she is his real mother. Occasionally touching but altogether too confused to know what it wants to say, To Each His Own is a decent way to spend two hours, if only for de Havilland's wonderful Oscar-winning turn.

A really good melodrama starring Olivia de Havilland as a woman who falls in love with a young soldier. He is killed in battle before they can marry, leaving de Havilland to raise the child alone. She gives her child up for adoption. After becoming successful in the cosmetic business she later on in life comes face to face with her grown son. She resists to tell him her real identity but with the help of an old British peer they are brought back together.

It is a movie that is quite soapy but not so much that one will be turned off by it. Olivia de Havilland's exquisite performance as a woman who gives up her son and later is brought together with him is one of the greatest performances by an actress. She deservedly won the Oscar for Best Actress, an award that was even sweeter since it was her first film after a forced 2 year long hiatus. Her performance in this film is closely matched by her later performance in The Heiress, for which she would earn her second Oscar, as the best of her brilliant career. Credit also belongs to the talented supporting cast, the screenwriter Charles Brackett and Mitchel Leisen's unpretentious, sensitive style of direction. Highly recommended viewing. 8/10

A little too soapy for my taste but Olivia de Havilland elevates this film several notches and is amply rewarded with an Oscar.

To Each His Own (1946) -- [6.0] -- Olivia de Havilland won her first Oscar for this sudsy soap opera about a woman who gives up her infant son and spends the rest of her life trying to reconnect with him. The melodrama may be an acquired taste, but no one can steal audience sympathy better than de Havilland. I went with it, happy ending and all. In a neat (and slightly creepy) bit of casting, John Lund plays both de Havilland's ill-fated lover and her grown-up son.

Definitely bawled my way through this-Olivia is amazing. Oscar most-deserved! Had some problems with the plot though and man is Corinne (Mary Anderson) a witch!

Olivia de Havilland won a well-deserved Oscar for her performance as a long suffering mother who loses her son to another mother after fear of scandal. This haunts her throughout the film - which spans between both World Wars. Fine direction by Hollywood romantic regular Leisen and an absolute masterful performance from De Havilland, who keeps the film from going over-the-top. Keep a tissue box nearby!

Fresh from the TCM premiere, a movie unlike any other movies at the time of the Hays Code. A woman falls for a WWI pilot(John Lund), who has one night of intimacy with him( that they do not show) and becomes pregnant by him, only to hear that his plane crashed and him dead, and thus the story of the plight of being a single mother begins.
