Abstract:

This film is considered by many critics to be the best work of Hollywood's foremost woman filmmaker of the 1950s. In this surprisingly sympathetic portrait, a traveling salesman played by Edmond O'Brien "comes across as a victim of his own sensitivity. Caught between two complementary spouses, O'Brien's dazed indecisiveness dominates the narrative. As always in Lupino's films, a strong social consciousness informs all choices: Joan Fontaine is an upper-crust 'lady, ' reverently attached to her dying father, while Lupino herself plays a tough-talking working woman, waitressing in a cheap Chinese restaurant"--Container.
