The story of the travails and triumphs of vaudeville star Lillian Roth, based on the actresses’ own 1954 memoir, is retold in Mann’s tough, unsentimental biopic, starring Susan Hayward as Roth, struggling to stay in the limelight through increasing dependency on alcohol, the death of her fiancé, and the nefarious influence of her domineering stage mother—another plum Van Fleet part, described by the New York Times as “something between a loving nursemaid and a sour warden of a women’s jail.”
