H.M. Pulham, Esquire (MOD)

Robert Young is a successful but stuffy Boston businessman. The glimmer of sadness in Young's eyes indicates that his ascension to the top was not without its cost.

Comments about H.M. Pulham, Esquire (MOD):

It won't play on our DVD player, although the other Hedy Lamarr movie purchased at the same time works just fine. I believe I've waited too long to return it.

Comments about H.M. Pulham, Esquire (MOD):

H.M. Pulham, Esq. is a seventy year old film that looks like it was made yesterday. The pictures are sharp and clear - beautiful to watch. Hedy Lamarr is cast as a New York copywriter for an ad agency, rather than her usual casting as an exotic beauty, a part where she shines.

Comments about H.M. Pulham, Esquire (MOD):

A love story for adults. Told in flashback. Dull boy meets exciting girl. Dull boy loses exciting girl. Dull boy meets dull girl, who has been dumped herself by an exciting boyfriend. Dull boy and dull girl marry because, well, who else is there? They settle into a quiet married life. Twenty years later exciting girl comes back into dull boy's life, causing him to reevaluate his decision. The results are adult and surprising.
The cast--Robert Young and Ruth Hussey as the dull couple, Hedy Lamarr and Van Heflin as the exciting alternatives who slipped away--are all excellent. This is probably Hedy Lamarr's best performance. King Vidor directed. The script is excellent, one of the few that examines such questions as what is love? and what is happiness? in an adult manner.
Perhaps not for everyone, but if you are in the mood for a solid, low-key drama without the usual melodramatic and/or soap opera complications, this one is for you.
All in all, highly recommended.
