Information and Film Reviews for Come Back, Little Sheba the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Unsettling drama about a worn-out housewife, her abusive, alcoholic husband and a comely boarder who causes further marital tension. The title refers to the housewife's despairing search for her lost dog. Booth, Lancaster, and Moore are all excellent. Based on the play by William Inge, this film still packs an emotional wallop.
