Based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play by George Kelly. Domineering wife Harriet Craig cares more about her house and the material possessions in it than she does for her loving husband, Walter.He becomes a murder suspect when Harriet leaves town to visit her sick sister. She heads back home, unaware of the potential scandal, after deciding her sister would recover better alone. Harriet's scheming and attempts at clearing Walter become too much for everybody in her house and before long, her servants, her niece and even Walter have started rebelling against her. Rosalind Russell is sublime in the role of Harriet Craig, a selfish woman whose life revolves around her material possessions and her veneration of them. She married her husband, Craig (John Boles), not out of love, as he did her, but for the comfort and security that he could provide for her. Blinded by his love for her, Craig does not see what his aunt, Harriet's own niece, and the housekeeper know all too well, until it is nearly too late. When he has the veil torn from his eyes, after Harriet demonstrates just how little she really cares about him, Craig is then able to see Harriet as she really is and as the others see her. She is then left alone among her sterile possessions, doomed to lead a lonely existence. Ms. Russell's breakout performance in this film rightly catapulted her to stardom. She was able to take an inherently unsympathetic character and make her somewhat sympathetic, a difficult task, indeed. John Boles is wonderful as the earnest and well meaning Craig, who ultimately realizes that he had given his heart to the heartless. Billie Burke is delightful as the neighbor. Jane Darwell, Dorothy Wilson, Alma Kruger, and Thomas Mitchell round out the strong supporting cast Based upon the Pulitzer Prize winning play by George Kelly, this play made a smooth transition to the silver screen. vhs tape in very good condition. box sleeve a bit worn.  NOTE: THIS TITLE IS NEVER MADE IT TO DVD, AND IS NOT AVAILABLE ON ANY ONLINE STREAMING SERVICES.  FREE USA SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN PRICE.
