Kitty Foyle

Kitty Foyle

About

Rogers earned herself an Oscar for her portrayal of the title character, a working-class Philadelphia girl who is forced to choose between the two loves of her life - her doctor fiancé and a wealthy socialite (Stafford), though the latter's upper-crust family doesn't approve of her involvement with him. Rogers is best known for her partnership with Astaire, and it's fascinating to see this different dimension of her talent.

  • Director: Sam Wood
  • Writer: Donald Ogden Stewart, Dalton Trumbo
  • Producer: Harry F Edgington, David Hempstead

In a nutshell

She's quite simply superb as Kitty, and although the movie is unashamedly a soppy chick flick, it's impossible not to be swept along by her romantic dilemmas.
