Louisa synopsis

Successful architect Hal Norton (Ronald Reagan) urges his elderly, widowed mother, Louisa (Spring Byington), to find something to do besides tormenting his wife (Ruth Hussey), son (Jimmy Hunt) and teen daughter (Piper Laurie). But soon the Norton household is turned upside down when Louisa starts dating the grocer (Edmund Gwenn). Then things become much worse when Hal's boss, Abel Burnside (Charles Coburn), becomes smitten with Louisa as well, resulting in an intense love triangle.
