Audience Reviews for Our Very Own


Cast: Ann Blyth, Ann Dvorak, Joan Evans, Farley Granger, Natalie Wood, Phyllis Kirk, Gus Schilling, Jane Wyatt, Donald Cook Director: David Miller Summary: Joyfully preparing for her high-school graduation, and her 18th birthday, Gail Mccauley stumbles across a family secret. Contrary to what she's been raised to believe, Gail's parents are not her biological parents; she was adopted. My Thoughts: "Loved the movie. I felt awful for the way Gail finds out. No one should find out that kind of news in that particular way. Her sister Joan is so jealous and catty. She's definitely the mean girl in the movie. But you see how awful she feels in the aftermath of her temper tantrum. You also feel a little resentment towards Gail for how she treats her adopted parents even though she is justified in her feelings. Great classic."
