None But the Lonely Heart (22-Sep-1944)

Director: Clifford Odets

Writer: Clifford Odets

From novel: None But the Lonely Heart by Richard Llewellyn

Music by: Hanns Eisler

Producer: David Hempstead

Keywords: Drama

Cockney drifter Ernie Mott settles down to help his mother run her secondhand furniture shop after he discovers she is ill. Though Ma has fenced goods at a low level for years, they are tempted with more such business, but even that may have a price. Uncharacteristic dramatic role for Cary Grant. Ethel Barrymore won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, after which she largely switched her career from stage to screen; the film received additional nominations for Best Actor, Best Score, and Best Editing.
