(1952) Strong story from William Inge's play about a middle-aged housewife (Shirley Booth) and her chiropractor husband (Burt Lancaster), a recovering alcoholic who goes off the wagon when a pert college student (Terry Moore) becomes their boarder. Director Daniel Mann keeps emotions churning as the couple's sad past and the harrowing consequences of alcoholism slowly emerge, but what remains most memorable is Booth's Oscar-winning performance as the pathetic wife. Implied premarital relations, sexual situations, and alcoholic violence. (A-III – adults). TCM (cable)
