Plot Summary

Jamie Rowan, an attractive widow, has a large house in wartime Washington D.C, Pat Jamieson, a scientist who is having difficulties with the housing shortage in the capital, desperately needs a place where he can conduct his experiments. Jamie proposes to a platonic marriage and the woman-hating bachelor accepts.

Critics' reviews

Brooks Atkinson - The New York Times
"As the unloved wife Miss Hepburn is giving a mechanical performance that is not without considerable gaucherie in the early scenes. In both the writing and the acting, Without Love is theatre on the surface of a vacuum."
