HOUR OF NIGHTFALL

With a practised, popular touch, and a certain glamourized emotionalism, this patterns the story of a mother, a daughter, and a boy who was to love both. When he was five, Dane Lowrey lost his heart to fifteen year old Helen Hemple, and his devotion was never to lessen, as Helen's exceptional beauty gives her special immunity. She marries George Albertson, has two children, Paul and Sally, whose adolescent love for Dane suffered considerably from jealousy of her mother and her mother's beauty which she knows she cannot rival. During the war, George has an affair and Helen, from pique, tries to reensnare the still admiring Dane. Paul's death brings George back to Helen, and Dane- now in love with Sally- marries her. Ample, assured, this will appeal to women, for some sales and more rentals.
