Come Back, Little Sheba

Watched this film on Turner Classics last night. What a great little movie. Shirley Booth (who I always hated in that awful TV show 'Hazel'), is fabulous. She played the role on Broadway and Burt Lancaster is her alcoholic hubby.

Super cast. A super young Richard Jaeckel, who I always dug especially in Sometimes a Great Notion and the Dirty Dozen. The guy was in everything and always good. He even played Archie Bunker's gay buddy in an 'All in the Family' episode (you can imagine Archie's reaction).

Terry Moore is also great and a real cutie pie.

The story is perfect. The symbolism of the lost dog (Sheba) is inspired. Check it out, Pilgrim!
