In this week's Jennifer Jones episode, we view our heroine in two new lights: as wife (in Nunnally Johnson's 1956 social problem epic, THE MAN IN THE GRAY FLANNEL SUIT) and spinster (in Henry Koster's GOOD MORNING, MISS DOVE 1955). Then, in our Moviegoing Section, we discuss Joseph Mankiewicz's THE GHOST & MRS. MUIR (1947) as the Hollywood Gertrud, along with Bresson and the pleasure of asceticism.
