"Still Crazy After All These Years"
I was just blessed with the opportunity to view "Home Before Dark" again after 25 years or so of waiting and waiting for it to air and I must say that I'm still crazy about this movie!! This is truly one of the best dramas that I've ever seen and believe me when I say that I'm no amateur in this department. I was a very young child when I saw this movie over 25 years ago and hadn't seen it since until today, but the basic story line stayed with me and particular scenes from the film have always stayed very vivid in my mind. I was amazed to no end that the very things that stood out about this movie over 25 years ago, still stand out and fascinate me to this very day. This story of a woman trying to acclimate herself into life after a long stint at a sanitarium is extremely life-like and one of the strongest dramatic performances I've ever seen. Jean Simmons gives an excellent performance as Charlotte . Other outstanding performances were given by a very dashing and young Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. I'm so thankful that this movie finally crossed my path again. It was not only entertaining, but educational. If you ever get the opportunity to watch this film, do so. You will NEVER regret it!
