    For a debut film that beats out the career peaks from so many other directors, I guess I stumble a bit when I hear it being called 'piss-poor'. Even for Dorothy McGuire's quiet and subtle performance alone, this film is clearly good. I found this more moving and true-to-life than On the Waterfront, though not by much. It really grabs you by the soul. 5 years 9 months ago

    It's not one of my favorite films, but I can't imagine finding a film like this "piss-poor." It's solid filmmaking, with memorable characters and some genuinely moving moments. 7 years 8 months ago

    Sentimental and endearing, a quintessential Forties masterpiece. James Dunn and Peggy Ann Garner are beyond fantastic. 7 years 10 months ago
