Come Back, Little Sheba (1952)

An emotionally remote recovering alcoholic and his dowdy, unambitious wife face a personal crisis when they take in an attractive lodger.

Quite effective and intense adaptation of a stage marriage drama with a good cast, but Shirley Booth's superb performance is the central point of interest.

Halliwell*: "Stagey but theatrically effective transcription of a popular domestic drama, with one outstanding performance."

Maltin***1/2: "William Inge play is emotional tour de force..."
