  • FOUR DAUGHTERS, based on the Fannie Hurst novel SISTER ACT, is a touching drama about the Lemps, a small-town musical family with four lovely girls. Director Michael Curtiz (MILDRED PIERCE) gently exposes the drama of the quiet household shattered by a parade of men drawn to the girls. Foremost among these disruptive characters is Mickey Borden (John Garfield), a morose piano player whose arrival causes emotional havoc for one of the daughters and the other man who loves her.

    Garfield, in his first feature film appearance, portrays the melancholy Borden with mesmerizing intensity, while the role of the family's patriarch, Adam Lemp, is acted with mastery and magnetism by Claude Rains. Priscilla Lane sparkles as the youngest sister, Ann, and May Robson perfectly embodies the perpetually fussy Aunt Etta. The wonderfully acted film inspired the sequels DAUGHTERS COURAGEOUS, FOUR WIVES, and FOUR MOTHERS, as well as the remake YOUNG AT HEART.
