At her father’s funeral, Ann Chapin thinks back over the last five years of his life, years dominated by a selfish and dissatisfied wife and eased only by alcohol. But it starts to emerge that there was in fact one brief and unsuspected period of happiness and love.

Golden Sail at Locarno in 1958. One of these mainstream movies nobody seems to have watched. And yet Philip Dunne was a very interesting writer/director. Furthermore, I was impressed by Gary Cooper's performance here in a film that sounds very "modern" at times. The surprise of the month. Highly recommended.
