Douglas Sirk’s first Technicolor tearjerker with Universal also marked the beginning of the legendary stardom of Rock Hudson. When playboy millionaire Bob Merrick (Hudson) causes a series of accidents that leave socialite Helen Phillips (Jane Wyman) widowed and blind, he vows to right his wrongs by paying his fortune forward, going to medical school and curing Helen’s blindness. Shot in lurid color and lushly scored by longtime Sirk collaborator Frank Skinner, the film features a leading couple for the ages. (2K DCP presentation)
