Description

Elia Kazan made his directorial debut with this adaptation of Betty Smith's novel about a young girl growing up in turn-of-the-century New York, trying to rise above her tenement existence. Sentimentally filmed by Kazan, this Oscar winner is distinguished with astounding performances by James Dunn as the wistful, alcoholic father, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor; and Dorothy McGuire as a strong-willed mother steadfastly holding the family together no matter what crisis arises. Peggy Ann Garner won a special Oscar for her performance as their 13-year old daughter, Francie (Most Promising Juvenile Performer). Joan Blondell co-stars as Francie's flamboyant, free-spirited aunt, whose means of financial support is a never-ending source of neighborhood gossip. Review Here's one of the occasions when Hollywood rises to brilliant heights of artistic accomplishment... A warm, sincere and deeply moving film. --News Of The WorldOne of the best films for a very long time. Only rarely has the screen given us a story of such truth and warm humanity, such acute observation and unforced pathos. --Daily TelegraphA first-class drama with strong feminine appeal. --Daily MirrorOne of the best films for a very long time.
