Susan Hayward received an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of an insecure alcoholic who's given up her singing career to marry an up-and-coming radio star (Lee Bowman). Yet this grim, noirish 1947 melodrama—powerfully written by John Howard Lawson, who adapted a story by Dorothy Parker and Frank Cavett and would soon be blacklisted—has never received its due. It cries out for revaluation. Directed by Stuart Heisler; with Marsha Hunt and Eddie Albert. 103 min.
