Mother love and the deep devotion of a noble woman to a noble work are again the dominant themes on the screen of the Music Hall, where Metro's "Blossoms in the Dust" opened yesterday. For out of the real-life story of Mrs. Edna Gladney of Fort Worth, the founder and head of the Texas Children's Home and Aid Society, Director Mervyn LeRoy and a duo of able writers have rendered a careful and compassionate account of one woman's selfless effort to make this world a better place in which to live. With lovely Greer Garson playing the leading role, the spirit of the story is maintained on a level generally above its frequent insipid spots.
