  • Roslyn's rating of the film Smash-Up: The Story of a Woman

    I can't believe that I didn't know about this film and I love Susan Hayward. Great melodrama from an original story by the acerbic Dorothy Parker. It tells the story of the downward spiral of a young woman's descent into alcoholism - her newly married life of idle richness is just too much . As her crooning husband succeeds in leaps and bounds so does her appetite for martinis and old fashioneds. A great watch!
