A middle-aged woman gets involved with a callous lover, whose inattention finally drives her crazy.
She loves him when he goes away for months. She loves him when he refuses to marry her. But when callow David Sutton chooses to marry someone else, Louise Howell's love for him takes a darker turn. Give her a gun and she'll love him to death. Joan Crawford re-teams with producer Jerry Wald of her Academy Award-winning Mildred Pierce and claimed a 1947 Best Actress Oscar nomination for her portrayal of tempestuous, mentally unstable Louise. I love you is such an inadequate way of saying I love you, Louise says. It doesn't quite describe how much it hurts sometimes. With Crawford at her film-noir-queen best, be assured it hurts so good.
