Reviewed on 6/4/2013...
This movie could have started the women's movement all on its own. The gist of it is that the couple's marriage has hit a bad patch and it's all totally the wife's fault for avoiding sex with her husband and for no longer being pretty enough to entice him. There's no inquiry into WHY she doesn't want to anymore. What she needs is a makeover! So she's given one and it's all fine again. Whatever the underlying issues in their relationship are -- loneliness, lack of affection, lack of attention, lack of common interests, the subservient role she must play -- are not important. It's her job to be "the entertainment", she just works there. Argh, I hate the 50s!

In the movie's favor -- it is a period piece, and it is deadly accurate about the societal attitudes of the time, both good (the importance of an intact family and a good relationship between parents as an influence on the kids) and awful (limited view of women's life roles). Richard Denning is good looking. That's about it.
