"The Subject Was Roses" is a 1968 film by Frank D. Gilroy adapted from his 1964 play of the same title. The film is a rare faithful adaptation of the play, employing most of the cast and crew. One notable exception is the replacement of Irene Dailey with veteran screen actress Patricia Neal. The film proved a significant comeback for Neal, who was still recovering from a debilitating stroke and hadn't appeared on screen since the 1965 film "In Harm's Way". For her performance, Neal was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Leading Actress. Albertson took home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and Sheen was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role. The film utilized two Judy Collins recordings: Collins' reading of Sandy Denny's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes", played over the film's opening credits, and Collins' own composition "Albatross".

Plot synopsis

Timmy Cleary returns home from his service during World War II. While he seems to vindicate himself in his father's eyes for surviving the war, his drinking and cursing disturb his mother. Though his parents, John and Nettie, seem to be happy, the peace proves to be a facade. Soon old emotional wounds and unresolved marital problems resurface. Caught in the middle, Timmy feels responsible for their squabbling, but can see no way to resolve their problems.
