A man who has ruined a woman's life attempts to make good on his debt to her (and his

conscience) in this sudsy drama based on a best-selling novel by Lloyd C. Douglas. Bobby

Merrick (Robert Taylor) is an alcoholic ne'er-do-well whose recklessness causes the death

of Dr. Hudson, a respected physician. Helen Hudson (Irene Dunne), the doctor's widow,

turns away from Merrick's apology, only to walk into traffic. She's struck by a car and

blinded. Shaken by the tragic events, Merrick gives up alcohol and begins studying to

become a doctor and right the wrong he's done to Helen. As he begins spending time at the

family's estate through a mutual friend, Helen grows fond of his frequent visits, and they

begin to fall in love. However, when Helen learns that Merrick is responsible for her

husband's death and her own accident, she moves away to a place where he cannot find

her. In time, Merrick becomes a gifted eye surgeon, and he learns that he could restore

Helen's sight with a delicate and dangerous operation that he has never performed before.

Magnificent Obsession was a box-office success that spawned a 1954 remake directed by

Douglas Sirk and starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman.
