But it should have been. And if even the least sentimental listener isn’t gripped or embraced by this tastefully arresting adaptation of the film hit—in which Robert Young, Dorothy McGuire, and Herbert Marshall reprise their remarkable film roles—he or she might be prone to charges of lacking soul.
