An early credit of Arthur Hiller's is the 1957 Playhouse 90 episode, "Homeward Borne". It stars Linda Darnell, Richard Kiley and Keith Andes, as a housewife,.and her husband and friend. It takes place at the end of WW2, and Linda has taken in a young boy, a Polish refugee from a concentration camp.. Although it was only for the summer, she decides.to adopt him; he is her son's age, and they've become friends. The problem starts when her husband returns from the war, and is reminded of it by this gaunt kid. Furthermore, the boy has many psychological issues, and Linda's attempts to shield him infuriates her husband, who decides he wants nothing to do with the boy.

 

This is an ok drama, based on a Ruth Chatterton novel (yes, that Ruth Chatterton). Since it was filmed, instead of done live, it saw a theatrical release the following year. Arthur Hiller cut his teeth on tv dramas such as this one. RIP.
