My Foolish Heart

Movie: My Foolish Heart
Director: Mark Robson
Produced by: RKO Radio Pictures, Samuel Goldwyn Company
Released By:
MPAA Rating: NR

Producer Samuel Goldwyn dishes up sentiment by the bowlful with My Foolish Heart. Susan Hayward is cast as a wide-eyed girl from Idaho who meets bon vivant Dana Andrews at a Manhattan party. Their brief affair results in a pregnancy, but since Andrews has been killed in the war, Hayward marries a man she doesn’t love to give her child a name. The experience turns the girl into an embittered alcoholic, but she sees the light before she can cause grief for her baby. Based on a story by J. D. Salinger, My Foolish Heart strains credulity to the breaking point, but was popular enough to yield a hit title song, which is still a standard on “easy listening” FM radio stations.
