Father doesn't know best in this exciting mystery of a will they, or will they not believe me?
Some, the ones who've already seen this film, might wonder as to why I chose this film as being one of my Susan Hayward's Essentials. After all, in all technicality, it really is a Robert Young vehicle. I chose it because despite the fact that her role is small in scale compared to others, she's the catalyst for the premise of the picture.
Larry Balantine is the sort of fella you probably shouldn't like, but nonetheless you do. He cheats, he lies, and he stays in a loveless marriage (at leat on his part anway) because of money. Yet, you get the feeling as though underneath it all, he's actually a really good guy . . . a good guy who just doesn't know how to learn that sometimes it's not life that has dealt you the bad hand of cards you've got, but rather yourself.

This was a fantastic movie, and even though it's more of a Robert Young film, I believe that Susan Hayward given the amount of screen time that she has does a marvelous job and that's why I made it one of my Susan Hayward pictures. I give this film a 3.5/4 stars. If you are interested in seeing this film, which I recommend that you do if you whether you are a Susan Hayward fan, a Robert Young fan, or just a lover of films in general, TCM is showing this film Friday, March 30th at 5:00 EST.
