THE STUBBORN WAY

Winning script in the Hopwood Award, and less promising material than previous awards, A mid-western industrial setting and the story of a youth, breaking off his education after freshman year at college, to go to work in a paper mill to support his mother and sister. Always he cherishes the ambition to go on -- but a succession of abortive love affairs, and the pressure of conditions at the mill (described in meticulous and dull detail) postpone this. Finally the right girl comes along -- and together they determine to finish their education with marriage ahead. Amatearish and dull.
