I remember first seeing this film as a young teenager on the late show. I'm so glad it has been released on DVD. I won't go into specifics on the story because that has been done by previous reviewers. What I will say is that the DVD transfer is excellent....both sight and sound. Stanwyck was positively the greatest actress of her generation and possibly the greatest actress of all time. So honest, sincere and talented. This film shows her at the peak of her craft....a true artist. The story is engaging and keeps you in suspense from the first moment to the last. Not one wasted reel. Directed by Mitchell Leisen, it is film noir at its best. The interesting thing about this film is that Stanwyck did all her stunts in the train wreck scene, along with Phyllis Thaxter. Jane Cowl is deliciously sympathetic as the grandmother. Lyle Bettger is a true menace and John Lund, though bland, is made to look good by Stanwyck. This is one of her best!!

Barbara Stanwyck had one of her best roles in this solid suspense film. She plays Helen, a pregnant young woman fleeing her worthless lover (Lyle Bettger). On the train out of town, she meets Patrice Harkness (Phyllis Thaxter), a bride of her age and general description, who's on her way with her groom to meet her rich in-laws for the first time. When the train crashes and the newlyweds are both killed, the desperate Helen sees a chance at a new life for herself and her unborn child. So Helen becomes Patrice, and she's accepted by the dead woman's in-laws and taken into their home. Her new "family" is kind to her, and the dead groom's brother (John Lund) even falls for her. Everything's like a dream come true--until the creepy ex-boyfriend shows up with blackmail on his mind...

NO MAN OF HER OWN is based on the novel I Married a Dead Man (The Best Mysteries of All Time) by Cornell Woolrich, and it's one of several great films based on his wonderful stories. Other Woolrich movie adaptations are Rear Window (Universal Legacy Series), The Window [Remaster], Phantom Lady [VHS], and The Bride Wore Black. This film is one of my favorites, and it's much better than the 1996 remake, MRS. WINTERBOURNE, which tried to turn this dark thriller into a comedy. Take my advice and stick with the original. Highly recommended.

I remember this as a pretty good melodrama. I believe this is the first time it's has ever been available on home video and I, for one intend to purchase it.

SPOILER ALERT!

As the film opens, Stanwyck is pregnant. "Baby Daddy" Lyle Bettger throws her out into the street with a one-way ticket out of town. On the train, Barbara meets newlywed Phyllis Thaxter who is is also pregnant and going to see her wealthy in-laws for the first time. At Thaxter's encouragement, Stanwyck tries on Thaxter's wedding ring saying "I think this is supposed to be bad luck" and, lo and behold, the train derails in a spectacular crash. Thaxter and her husband are killed in the crash. Stanwyck is knocked unconscious and the rescuer party assumes that Stanwyck is Thaxter because of Thaxter's ring that Stanwyck is still wearing. Times being what they are, Stanwyck decides to leave well enough alone. Then, Bettger shows up again with extortion on his mind. It's a good melodrama and I can't wait to see it again.

It takes a great cast, director, crew and screenplay to turn a hoary story idea like this: a woman impersonating another (dead) woman, becoming part of the dead woman's family, and then getting visited by her dark and shady past - and turn it into something close to a masterpiece. Fortunately, director and uncredited contributor to the screenplay Mitchell Leisen, screenwriters Sally Benson and Catherine Turney (adapting a Cornell Woolrich novel), and principal cast Barbara Stanwyck, John Lund, Phyllis Thaxter, Jane Cowl and Lyle Bettger are around to perform the miracle, and make this into a seminal woman-in-danger noir.

As the film begins, the pregnant Stanwyck character is thrown over by scumbag boyfriend Bettger, and given a trainride out of town. On the train she meets a sympathetic couple, also about to have a child, and the woman lets her try on her wedding ring while they are in the ladies' room. You know what's going to happen now don't you? Well, if you can't guess I won't spoil it. In any case, Stanwyck is soon mistakenly adopted into a new family with her new baby, but it's a rich family, and somehow slimy Bettger finds out... Stanwyck is just marvellous in a role that calls for a lot of bewilderment and uncertainty, and only a gradual show of the kind of strength that the actress demonstrated time and again; Lund is excellent as the sympathetic brother-in-law who wants to be more, and Bettger, wow, what a great creep. There's a bit of great location work at a train station which combines strikingly well with the Paramount sets used for the rest of it, and a lovely Olde New England stuffiness is beautifully communicated to contrast with the more modern and "liberated" Stanwyck character.
