All That Heaven Allows
Their lives couldn’t be more different – hers revolves around her similarly well-off friends and the country club whereas he leads a much simpler, less materialistic life – so when a wealthy widow (Wyman) meets and falls in love with a gardener (Hudson) who is much younger than her everyone from her grown-up children to her friends disapprove.
They become engaged but eventually Cary bows to pressure from her children and breaks off the engagement, but before too long something happens which makes Cary realise what is important to her.
Dismissed at the time as ‘a woman’s film’ , in 1995 All That Heaven Allows was selected for preservation in the US National Film Registry as a film of cultural, historical or aestheic significance.
This original vintage lobby card is Card #5 from the set eight cards and shows Cary introducing Ron to her children.
