Critics reviews

The Role allowed [Steve Cochran] to retain some bad-boy g lamour while displaying great gentleness and warmth with the movie’s children and animals, and sexy chemistry with Ann Sheridan, perfectly cast as his tough-minded no-nonsense wife.

At first glance this R.G Springsteen (Hellfire) film is just a nice slice of Americana about a man returning to his family after abandoning them years prior but it ends up being quite a frank film that deals with some pretty rough stuff, like how devastatingly hard it can be to trust someone who has betrayed you.

Ann Sheridan, in one of her last film roles, plays a farm wife who’s been raising her kids alone after her alcoholic husband took a powder; Cochran, cast radically against type, plays that husband, home after nearly ten years, dried out and trying to stay that way so he can get to know his kids. Both give lovely performances; their first reunion, delivered with clean sincerity, is a marvel of things left unsaid.
