seeking name of film - old woman in apt bldg taken over by college students


Recommended Posts



There is a movie, from late 1940s (or maybe early 1950s) about an elderly woman in an apartment building, who lost her son. Perhaps from a war. Or maybe she was waiting for him to return, and he never returned. In the meanwhile, her apartment building was taken over by a college. Soon everybody else in the building was a college student. Over time, she became attached to some of them (who sought her advice in matters, etc.) and had become important to them. In turn, some of the students had become important to her.


I was reading some comments about it on www.IMDb.com , which were very complimentary about this movie (about how touching it was, that it was a good sentimental movie, etc.). That was several years ago. I forgot to write down the name of the movie title.


Does anybody here know which movie I may be talking about?


The "User Comments" at IMDb were several ringing endorsements, making it sound like an exceptional movie. A drama, well done, that dealt with emotional things -- such as the woman's not wanting to leave the apt. bldg. because her son would then not have any way to find her. Also, it was suggested in the Comments that some of the college students were substitutes (of a kind) for her lost son.


Any ideas would be appreciated, in helping me to track down the name of this movie!
