Jennifer Jones does an excellent job aging from 21 to 56. The movie could have easily become maudlin but, instead, tells the story with charm without feeling you are being manipulated. I'm not sure that there was another Hollywood actress, at the time, that could have pulled it off. She still had some of the "shine" from the role of St Bernadette from "A Song of Bernadette."
