      Movie Info

      Upon being diagnosed with terminal cancer, selfless suburban housewife Mary Scott (Margaret Sullavan) makes the ultimate sacrifice: she decides to keep the unpleasant news from her husband, Brad (Wendell Corey), and daughter, Polly, to avoid devastating her loved ones. Instead, Mary encourages Brad's affair with a co-worker (Viveca Lindfors), and even grooms the other woman to take her place. But as Mary's illness progresses, keeping it a secret presents a considerable challenge.

      • Jul 22, 2011

        Cast: Margaret Sullivan, Wendell Corey, Viveca Lindfors, Natalie Wood, John McIntire, Ann Doran, Dorothy Tree, Richard Quine, Jeanette Nolan Director: Rudolph Mate Summary: Rudolph Mate directs this sentimental melodrama about a ridiculously self-sacrificing wife based on the book by Ruth Southard and starring a 12-year-old Natalie Wood. Mary Scott (Margaret Sullavan) is... read more pregnant when she finds out that she has terminal cancer with only a few months left to live. She keeps this information a secret from her husband, Brad Scott (Wendell Corey), who is carrying on an affair with his assistant, Chris Radna (Viveca Lindfors). My Thoughts: "A beautiful story about a strong mother and wife who struggles in silence with her disease and the acceptance that she is dying. Her husband Brad is fascinated by Chris and even starts a somewhat affair with her which infuriates you but you also believe that he's absolutely in love with his wife. Instead of ripping into Brad like a wife these days would, she sees this as an opportunity for Brad to be happy after she is gone, and sees Chris as someone who may be a good mother to her young Polly. Chris is not someone you will hate even though you want too. Great story."
