Come Back, Little Sheba
Based on William Inge's classic play, Come Back, Little Sheba is the stirring tale of a life-weary couple who rescue hope from the ruins of the past.
Shirley Booth stars in an Academy Award winning performance as Lola, slovenly housewife to Doc Delaney (Burt Lancaster), a recovering alcoholic. The Delaney's life is dull and unchanging, but takes a dramatic turn when the couple take in a charming boarder, Marie (Terry Moore).
Marie becomes the daughter the Delaneys never had. But when Marie takes up with a boorish boyfriend, Doc descends into a jealous tailspin and must once again face the temptations of the bottle. An unforgettable film shimmering with life-truths and dramatic intensity that also nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Film Editing.
