Facing formidable competition from Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn and Joan Fontaine, Ginger Rogers won the Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Kitty Foyle in this classic three-handkerchief romance. Torn between two lovers, Kitty reflects on the events that have led to her current dilemma. A working-class girl from the wrong side of the Philadelphia tracks, Kitty weds New York blueblood Dennis Morgan. Their happy ever after is soured by the opposition of Morgan’s snooty family, the first of many tragedies and sorrows that help to make Kitty the independent woman she becomes. A perfectly cast Rogers is irresistible in this plush, old-style Hollywood tear-jerker. Bring a box of soft centres. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
