You're My Everything is a 1949 film directed by Walter Lang. It stars Dan Dailey and Anne Baxter.[1]


Boston, 1924: A starstruck Hannah Adams waits outside in the rain to meet Tim O'Connor, who has just performed in a musical on stage. She invites him home to meet her family, and soon they are in love and getting married.

Tim gets a Hollywood screen test. Hannah is asked to read with him and ends up the one being offered a contract. She becomes a star in silent movies. At the advent of sound, she retires to have a baby and live with Tim on a farm.

Their daughter, Jane, is taken by Tim to studio chief Henry Mercer when a child's role in a film becomes available. A hesitant Hannah agrees to let her daughter be in just one movie, but Tim conceals the fact that Jane is being given a three-picture contract. The conflict threatens to break up the family.
