In this stage version of the popular film starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, and William Holden, the life of an actor’s wife is not as glamorous as many imagine. Some actors make enough money to tide them over between plays, but not Frank, whose long periods of idleness are punctuated by despair, loss of self-esteem and drink. His wife Georgie Elgin is a faithful, forgiving woman, whose long years of devotion to her actor husband have almost obliterated her own personality. When Frank is offered a major role in an important new Broadway play, Frank is all in, but only Georgie knows the struggle it will be to boost Frank’s morale and reassure him at every turn. The “country girl” will once again have to prove herself for what she is—a magnificent young woman whose self-sacrificing goodness has never been truly appreciated.
