Directed by Rudolph Maté
USA 1956

 

  Jane Wyman is appealing in the role of the grateful, love-smitten secretary, who finds happiness in a sudden romance that gives her surcease in an otherwise drab existence. Van Johnson, as the Tennessee reporter-G. I., is a gentle and understanding though sometimes breezy lover. Eileen Heckart adds a few touching bits as Miss Wyman's spinster office pal. Josephine Hutchinson does well as Miss Wyman's mother, who is constantly bereaved over her separation from William Gargan, who has little to do as the father.

Comments:

What a pleasant film. Melodramatic to be sure but it's great to occasionally cocoon into such a lovely experience. I enjoyed it very much and the transfer is quite good. Acceptable, if not stellar, contrast and the picture often exhibits moments of strong clarity. It is coded for regions 1,2,3 + 4 in the NTSC standard and has optional English subtitles (Warner has given up offering French and Spanish - probably not cost effective).

There are 2 vintage "Behind the Cameras" segments from the Warner Bros. Presents TV series - they last about 5 minutes each and are really nothing but ads of the era. There is also a trailer.

I'm happy to own this film, despite the elevated level of disbelief one must embrace. I've always liked Van Johnson and Wyman. Certainly very reasonable for the price. Recommended!
