Adoption on Film: "To Each His Own" (Mitchell Leissen, 1946)

September 17, 2011 - 3:30pm - 5:30pm

Presented by the Pittsburgh Consortium for Adoption Studies, Department of English, Film Studies Program, Womens Studies Program, University of Pittsburgh School of Arts and Sciences

Olivia de Havilland stars in an Academy-Award winning performance as Jody, a mother managing the complexities of a life with and without her son Griggsy, whom she shares with his adoptive mother and her friend Corinne.

A sublime women’s film of the studio era, To Each His Own reveals a sophisticated sense of a birth parent’s loss while demonstrating the sensibilities of its era and genre.
