Come Back, Little Sheba
In this adaptation of the Broadway production, Lola Delaney is the vulgar "shotgun bride" of recovering alcoholic Doc Delaney. Young Marie rents a room from Lola. Doc is having enough trouble staying away from the bottle and resigning himself to his marriage without the curvaceous Marie arousing his baser instincts.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In this adaptation of Inge's play, Daniel Mann, a specialist of melodramas, gets a good performance from Shirely Booth as a self-pitying housewife but a misguided one from Burt Lancaster."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"among the best of several booze-obsessed Hollywood melodramas of the 1950s"
‑ David Bezanson, Filmcritic.com
"Nothing comes alive at you. Nothing roots us to the Delaneys, and in turn nothing grounds them in any world except that of Inge's creaky schemata."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"This is Booth's movie as was the Broadway production. Dynamic."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
