No Man of Her Own

No Man of Her Own combines an adult love story with melodrama, runs off with the intensity of a full-bloom soap opera, and is altogether satisfying screen dramatics [from the novel I Married a Dead Man by William Irish].

No Man of Her Own combines an adult love story with melodrama, runs off with the intensity of a full-bloom soap opera, and is altogether satisfying screen dramatics [from the novel I Married a Dead Man by William Irish].

Barbara Stanwyck does a beautiful job of portraying the heroine, a girl who has been kicked out by her lover after becoming pregnant. She takes advantage of a train accident to assume the identity of a fellow passenger killed in the wreck and moves in with the latter’s in-laws to assure her son a home and the love of good people. Her happiness is threatened when the ex-lover tracks her down.

John Lund wraps up his role as the man who falls in love with a girl he believes to be the widow of his dead brother. It’s a fine job.
