Superb comedy- one of Deanna's best.

This is a delightful and touching film, superbly directed and scripted. Durbin is a missionary's daughter who returns to America with an array of war orphans. Through a misunderstanding she claims to have married a wealthy sea captain and as he is lost at sea, his family takes her in. Soon she is being courted by the captain's son, charmingly played by Edmond O'Brien. The whole confection is very heartwarming and touching, never cloying. It only earned an Oscar nom for Scoring but I would have given it additional ones for Direction, Art Direction, Screenplay, Cinematography and Supporting Actor - a marvelous piece of character acting by Barry Fitzgerald. This is one of Hollywood's best- seek it out.
