This Five Hanky Weeper is a classic Lana Turner vehicle. She never looked
This is a remake of a 1934 Claudette Colbert movie of the same name from a popular Fannie Hurst novel.
The 1934 version is more true to the original story but it is difficult to find and is seldom shown on television.
The story has been rewritten to take full advantage of Ms. Turner's luminescent beauty. Now, instead of a restaurant owner she is a glamorous star of stage and film.
But the underlying pathos is the same -- two women, each with a daughter that does not appreciate the sacrifices their mothers have made.
Before I saw this film I had no idea who Susan Kohner was. She turns out quite a performance and I wonder why she didn't do more films.
Sandra Dee as Ms. Turner's daughter is Sandra Dee playing a daughter -- you've seen it before.
In the final scences when Susan Kohner's character does her "That's my momma..." piece you can hear sobs coming from the people in the audience...
Do not be surprised if some of them are yours.
