About Mrs. Leslie 1954 Shirley Booth Drama Romance
Stars: Shirley Booth, Robert Ryan, Marjie Millar
In About Mrs. Leslie, Shirley Booth plays Vivien, a rooming house landlady. She often reminisces in flashbacks about her past as a cafe entertainer and her involvement with the mysterious George Leslie. Mr. Leslie originally hired her as a vacation companion but tells her nothing of his life outside the vacations. Eventually she learns of his aviation work and his unhappy marriage. In subplots, Mrs. Leslie’s tenants and neighbors carry on soap-opera lives.
Meanwhile, through her reminiscences and her involvement in her tenants’ troubles, Vivien questions her relationship with George. Did it cost her as much as it gave her?
Shirley Booth displays a range of emotions in this film and she gets the chance to sing. The story of the couple’s unusual courtship is told mostly in flashback. Several sub-plots are in the present to balance out the narrative.
