All I Desire • 1h 19m
Directed by Douglas Sirk • 1953 • United States
Starring Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Carlson, Lyle Bettger
Barbara Stanwyck delivers a memorably gutsy, hard-nosed performance as Naomi Murdoch, a washed-up vaudeville actress who, ten years after she left her husband and children to pursue fame on the stage, returns home to the small, turn-of-the-century Wisconsin town where her estranged family still lives. Regretting her decisions, Naomi decides to turn over a new leaf and devote herself to the daughter she’s never known—but first she must fight back against the vicious gossip attending her return.
