About Mrs. Leslie (1954) is an American drama film directed by Daniel Mann and starring Shirley Booth and Robert Ryan. It was nominated for a BAFTA Award in 1955.

A lonely, unhappy owner of a Beverly Hills boarding house reflects on her lonely, unhappy life and the lonely, unhappy man she once loved. Director Daniel Mann's 1954 drama about lonely, unhappy people stars Shirley Booth, Robert Ryan, Alex Nicol, Marjie Millar, Eileen Janssen, Percy Helton, Ray Teal, Maidie Norman, Mabel Albertson, Ellen Corby, Harry Morgan, James Bell, Virginia Brissac, Laura Elliott, Philip Ober, Nana Bryant and Ian Wolfe.


Mrs. Leslie, rooming house landlady, reminisces in flashbacks about her past as a cafe entertainer and her long-time involvement with the mysterious George Leslie, an industrialist who originally hires her as a vacation "companion" but tells her nothing of his life outside the vacations. In subplots, Mrs. Leslies tenants and neighbors carry on soap-opera lives while Mrs. Leslie herself, through her reminiscences and her involvement in her tenants troubles, questions what her relationship with George Leslie has really cost her.
