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.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Dennis Morgan, Ginger Rogers, Eduardo Ciannelli, Gladys Cooper, Ernest Cossart, James Craig
  • Director: Sam Wood
  • Writer: Dalton Trumbo, Donald Ogden Stewart
  • Producer: David Hempstead, Harry F Edgington
  • Photographer: Robert de Grasse

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.
