harwee h Moderately entertaining with David Niven and icon Farley Granger alone being worth the watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The Film Is Okay. But the Picture Is From the Movie LADIES IN RETIREMENT, In Which We See Ida Lupino And Elsa Lanchester Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Frances H Lovely , romantic and haunting, this is one of Niven's best pictures. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/16/20 Full Review Tom M Great romance. Well written. Entire cast is great. Meadows' character should be on AFI's all time villains list. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/14/20 Full Review Audience Member Terribly heartless story, with a long boring lead-in and very poor direction! And David Niven's character is a disappointment! I'd suggest lots of coffee so to keep awake! The only redemption is Theresa Wright's acting and character! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Wonderful.
