It was in this so-so romantic drama that Elizabeth Taylor said she first got an interest in being a good performer; up until then it had just been a job she had been doing since childhood. She’s excellent as a headstrong young woman who captures the fancy of before driving him into loneliness and despair. Aside from her and the beautiful title song (which had already debuted in the film Lady Be Good), there’s really no reason to rush out and see it. Donna Reed appears in a supporting role.
