After almost dying in a boating accident, playboy Bob Merrick (a young Rock Hudson) is miraculously saved by his town’s only resuscitator – yet as a result, the kindly Dr. Phillips dies from a heart attack while waiting across town for the machine. When his recklessness affects the Phillips family a second time, Bob becomes inextricably entangled with the newly widowed Helen (Academy Award nominated Jane Wyman) and looks for redemption through altruism and love. Filmed in Technicolor, Magnificent Obsession exhibits the style Sirk would come to refine and perfect throughout the latter park of his career.
