Additional Information

'No Man of Her Own' (1950). A train accident and a case of mistaken identity gives a pregnant woman abandoned by her lover the opportunity to pass as the daughter-in-law of a wealthy couple. When her past returns to threaten her new life, she discovers the lengths she will go to escape it. Leisen’s suspenseful noir probes the possibility of reinvention and redemption.

Followed by: 'The Mating Season' (1951). After she’s forced to close the hamburger stand her deceased husband started, Ellen McNulty goes to visit her son (Lund) only to be mistaken as a domestic by his new wife (Tierney). As Ellen, Thelma Ritter delivers a gutsy low-brow performance while Leisen deftly maneuvers through the comic and dramatic turns of the story.
