family sticks together in hard times
Mady Christians, Jean parker, Betty Furness star in "Wicked Woman" from MGM. Christians is "Naomi", pregnant when her abusive husband Ed decides to leave with one of the sons. Naomi tries to rebuild her life on her own, but of course the sheriff comes looking for the husband, who never seems to be found. Naomi teaches the kids right from wrong, and makes a go of things. opens her own shop. Sterling Holloway is in here as a minor part. he frequently did the voice for winnie the pooh! and one of Robert Taylor's early roles. Charles Bickford is their guardian angel. It's pretty good. almost too sugary sweet.... mom is teaching all the kids right from wrong, at any cost. moves pretty slowly. takes a long time to get going. all's well that ends well.. hopefully. Directed by Charles Brabin... this was the last one he directed!
