      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews This overlooked film noir is deliciously delirious. Rated: A- May 31, 2022 Full Review Dudley Early Austin American-Statesman This is a better than average movie. It gives Barbara Stanwyck a chance to display her talents, which she does to good advantage. Rated: 2/4 Jun 19, 2020 Full Review Jay Carmody Washington Star Leisen's direction is never artful enough to give plausibility to the adventures that overtake Miss Stanwyck. Oct 18, 2019 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Most of the strength of the movie rests on Stanwyck -- one of the greatest of all screen actresses -- and her ability to sell this story.

      Steve D Barbara makes the most of a contrived script. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review james g The novel has a Great title: I Married A Dead Man (Cornell Woolrich). The novel is better and more noirish. Still, the plot rocks. The people have great faces! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review dave j Adapted from the novel called by "I Married a Dead Man" by Cornell Woolrich with Helen (Barbara Stanwyk) who pregnant and unwed making an attempt to run away her awful life. While taking the train and building a rapport with another local passenger and her husband, a terrible derailment happens she accidentally assumes the identity of another passenger whose life is better than hers. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member My own personal favorite film about mistaken identity. This movie has it all, from romance, mystery, drama and murder with a twist. Barbara Stanwyck truly shines as the leading lady in this spectacular story. Aside from the gorgeous background of a Victorian mansion this is Noir at its finest. Every scene is perfectly blended with the mood as the plot thickens. The Protagonists are wonderful people anyone can respect or even identify with. While the Villain Steve Morley (Lyle Bettger )creates tensions with his greed driven Narcissistic personality to the fullest. Every moment throughout this diverse and intense dynamic between each character is true perfection! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member No Man of Her Own showcases Barbara Stanwyk's penchant for convincing portrayals of anguished and conflicted emotions, creating in the process a work with the delectable flavors of a guilty pleasure movie. On the one hand, we feel shamelessly manipulated by plot developments which require us to buy into unlikely outcomes for the sake of cheap and superficial emotional payoffs . On the other hand, we grudgingly take the bait, given the engaging nature of the film's premise and the effective performances by its central players. Most importantly, I found myself genuinely caring about the plight of the beleaguered heroine, despite a playfully nagging annoyance with my own apparent gullibility. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Kay W I loved this movie. I haven't seen it in 35 years, but I remember when I first saw it I loved it.
