Come Back, Little Sheba (1952) was a Drama Film directed by Daniel Mann and produced by Hal B. Wallis.
An attractive boarder stirs the barely hidden seeds of contempt between a tired, disappointed housewife and her husband, a washed-up alcoholic doctor. Great performances bring William Inge's 1950 play to life on the big screen.
