Four Daughters ★★★ 1938

Classic, three-hankie outing in which four talented daughters of music professor Rains fall in love and marry. Garfield shines, in a role tailor-made for him, as the world-weary suitor driven to extremes in the name of love. Great performances from all. Based on the novel “Sister Act” by Fannie Hurst. 90m/B VHS . Claude Rains, John Garfield, May Robson, Priscilla Lane, Lola Lane, Rosemary Lane, Gale Page, Dick Foran, Jeffrey Lynn, Frank McHugh; D: Michael Curtiz; W: Lenore Coffee, Julius J. Epstein; C: Ernest Haller; M: Max Steiner.
