Goodbye, My Fancy (Warner 1951, Joan Crawford, Robert Young)

Goodbye, My Fancy 1951 Joan Crawford

In Goodbye, My Fancy Joan Crawford stars as an ambitious congresswoman who returns to finish her degree at the school from which she was expelled 20 years earlier for having an affair with a professor. Sparks reunite as soon as Young, now the school president, lays eyes on Crawford again. A triangle develops when a photographer-reporter vies to break up the romance. Watch for Ellen Corby (Grandma Walton) and Eve Arden in small roles.

Co-star Janice Rule, an intriguing if little-used leading lady in movies of the 1950s and 60s, began a second career in the 1970s as a psychoanalyst.
