Lillian Hellman’s play had been filmed by Wyler as the acclaimed These Three 25 years prior. His second pass teams Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine as headmistresses of a girls’ school who try to come to terms with their sexual orientations while student Karen Balkin sets the cat among the pigeons. The film’s five Oscar nominations included one for Fay Bainter (in her final feature) as Balkin’s intervening grandmother.
