A successful nightclub singer weds a struggling songwriter, but when his fame eclipses hers, she delves into alcoholism.
In 1947, alcoholism was still a relatively unexplored topic in Hollywood films. Billy Wilder had created quite a stir with The Lost Weekend (1945) two years previously, obviously paving the way for this depiction of the disease from a female perspective.
