Primrose Path DVD 1940 Ginger Rogers Joel McCrea Drama Black & White NR
Stars of Primrose Path: Ginger Rogers, Joel McCrea, Marjorie Rambeau
Ellie Mae lives on Primrose Hill with her good-hearted and fancy free mother, her drunken father, her younger sister and a mean-spirited grandmother. The Hill is not a good part of town, however. When she meets and falls for a hard-working man, they marry and she hides her past from him. When he discovers the truth it jeopardizes their marriage.
Joel McCrea and Ginger Rogers did some of their best work in this picture. The story is a great one, and it was well executed.
Trivia: This film missed out on well deserved Oscar nominations because of its risque material, such as the clear themes of prostitution and alcoholism. It ran into trouble with the Hollywood censor boards in many scenes, which is why Ginger Rogers did not receive an Oscar nomination (which she should have done in many people's opinion).

Note to Buyers
Mayda Mart movies consist of mostly American films made before 1964. These carefully researched films have been considered to be in the public domain in the USA for many years. Why is a film in the public domain? Briefly, films fall into the public domain because they were never properly registered with the Library of Congress in the first place or were not renewed as required by the prevailing copyright laws at the time. This movie has been researched and found to be in the public domain in the U.S. because the copyright has either expired and is no longer valid or the film was not copyrighted at all. Researched first with the United States Copyright Office Public Catalog as well as other public domain resources.
