40s or 50s movie about a man and his daughter

Black and white and in english. Begins with his daughter as a little girl. I think initially they have a bad relationship because he’s away on business often or something? Then she contracts polio and at some point is put in an iron lung. Then the movie flashes forward to when the girl is a teenager and she’s paralyzed/uses crutches to get around, but I think they have a better relationship? I don’t know, that’s all I got.
