The words for this movie are deliciously DELECTABLE!! Script, direction and acting are all top-notch.Whoever did the casting deserves accolades. One of the few movies to use the amazing, hilarious Thelma Ritter!

Linda Darnell is fantastic. I spent 2 hrs saturated in this lady. The special feature about her was heart breaking. Great movie.

Interestingly (?), this movie is based on a 1940's novel titled "A Letter to Five Wives."

Don't be put off by the cover, this isn't a sappy 'chick flick'. The acting and writing are top notch. Although no crime is commited (per se), this plays like a whodunnit that you'll be sure to enjoy.
