PG Certificate


Our Score
Seven years after winning his Oscar for playing an alcoholic in The Lost Weekend, Ray Milland was involved with booze again in this less ambitious vehicle, produced and directed by George Stevens. As a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, married Milland helps actor Joan Fontaine battle the demon drink and falls for her in the process. Teresa Wright plays Milland's wife, and all three stars, though past the peak of their film careers, give excellent performances. It is director Stevens who must take the blame for the film's dull tone and turgid progress.


An actress seeking help with her drinking problem has an affair with a married man she meets at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Drama, starring Joan Fontaine and Ray Milland.
