The Shopworn Angel
The chemistry that Margaret Sullavan and James Stewart would lift to exquisite heights in The Shop Around the Corner is on earlier display in this tender romance scripted by Waldo Salt (Midnight Cowboy, Coming Home). Sullavan portrays Daisy Heath, a Broadway songbird who knows too much about life. Texas doughboy Bill Pettigrew (Stewart) knows little, except that he'll soon be shipped overseas to the World War I trenches. And that he's been crazy in love with Daisy ever since they shared a taxi. Increasingly charmed by Bill's heartfelt devotion and hoping to give him something to look forward to while he's risking death over there, Daisy agrees to marry him. But there's something about her Bill doesn't know....
