An interesting tale and an early directorial effort from Robert Wise. When a young boy is the sole survivor of a mountain plane crash, three women begin to wonder if he's the child each gave up for adoption. While waiting for the news, the women all look back on their lives. We discover the reasons behind their decisions to give their sons up, and what their lives have been like up to this point. This is similar in some ways to the plot device used in A Letter to Three Wives, which also deals with the pasts of three women, however this film is much more somber in tone. It doesn't have the crackling, witty dialogue, which made Wives so memorable. The suspense is quite good, with all three stars doing excellent work here. It's fun seeing Eleanor Parker, Patricia Neal, and Ruth Roman all of whom would go on to be major stars during the 1950s; it's a wonderful showcase for their dramatic talents. If you like films with good character studies, Three Secrets is for you.
