On the eve of World War II, a British officer revisits Waterloo Bridge and recalls the young man he was at the beginning of World War I and the young ballerina he met just before he left for the front. Myra stayed with him past curfew and is thrown out of the corps de ballet. She survives on the streets of London, falling even lower after she hears her true love has been killed in action. But he wasn't killed. Those terrible years were nothing more than a bad dream is Myra's hope after Roy finds her and takes her to his family's country estate. Written by

Of all the classic Hollywood films ever made, this somewhat obscure title happens to be one of the most popular in China, especially among college students. There are even audio guides for students to practice their English by reciting dialogue from this film. The reason for why this particular film has become so endeared among the Chinese is anyone's guess. One possibility is that the popularity of Gone with the Wind (1939) in China led many to seek other movies starring Vivien Leigh. See more »
The uniforms worn by the officers are more like US uniforms in cut and cloth than British. Roy's officer's hat is distinctly American in shape. See more »
This film is rare in many ways. First off everyone in America was waiting to see what was going to be Vivien Leigh's first movie after her great performance in "Gone with the Wind". And this was it. This film turned out to be her only "North American"(Hollywood type),non costume drama,non southern accent (Scarlett O'Hara/Blanche DuBois)type movie post "GWTW" while she was still in her twenties."That Hamilton Woman" (1941)was a "British" production. Factor in the fact that when asked later in life which one of her films was her personal favorite, what was her reply? Not "GWTW",not "A Streetcar Named Desire",but "Waterloo Bridge"(it was also "Robert Taylors" personal favorite).This movie gives you a little taste of what might have been if she made more "Hollywood" type movies while still in her twenties. Possibly paired up with some of Hollywood's greatest leading men "Humphrey Bogart","Cary Grant",who knows?Will never know.Highly recommended! Find it!
