Quick Overview

Starring Veronica Lake, Sonny Tufts, Joan Caulfield, Ray Collins, Billy De

Wolfe, Lillian Gish

Directed by John Berry



Print: black/white

Runtime: 88 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Based on the novel by Augusta Tucker, the provocatively titled Miss

Susie Slagle's is actually a leisurely, sentimental story set in a

turn-of-the-century boarding house. The title character, played by Lillian

Gish, is the house's landlady, catering exclusively to young doctors and

nurses in training. Miss Susie Slagle takes pride in the fact that not one

of her boarders has ever failed medical school, but for a while it looks as

though this perfect record will be spoiled by Elijah Howe Jr. (Bill

Edwards), the seemingly irresponsible son of one of Susie's former

tenants (Ray Collins). The bulk of the storyline is carried by med student

Pug Prentiss (Sonny Tufts), who carries on a romance with Howe Jr.'s

sister Margaretta (Joan Caulfield, in her film-starring debut). Flamboyant

comic actor Billy DeWolfe is uncharacteristically restrained as pragmatic

third-year student Ben Mead, though the script contrives to allow

DeWolfe to do one of his celebrated female-impersonation routines! In

true open-ended fashion, the film ends as it begins, with Miss Susie

Slagle welcoming another crop of students to her lodgings.
