| Probably Stanwyck's Best Movie
This movie is simple and true to the tale it tells.

The casting is fine and honorable. Barbara Stanwyck is very touching as the young schoolteacher in a rural area.

The way she arrives at the name for the person who is the tile character is sweet and genuine.

When we flash forward, and she is made up to look genuinely older, he is a real pill, and our hearts break. But what better salvation for a young man on the make could there be than the young, blonde Bette Davis, forceful and sympathetic as an artist who turns him around so his mother can again be proud of him.
