Loved Love A Soldier
28 October 2001 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

This is a small quiet film with much tenderness. Much like TENDER COMRADE. It's stars Paulette Goddard and Sonny Tufts, fresh from their successful teaming in SO PROUDLY WE HAIL. Paulette is a well meaning home front entertain-the-troops while on leave. Along comes Sonny and sparks fly. However, Paulette won't take anything serious as she doesn't want to get hurt when the fellows take off to fight the war. It's fun and sometimes sensitive in how she finally promises to wait for him to come home. I liked this movie because of the underplaying of the leads. Tufts is often made fun of for his one level acting [including the joke at Academy Award time when a star was introducing the next guest by saying " And now, here's Sonny Tufts?"] but I founf him in this film as he was in SO PROUDLY WE HAIL to hold his own and work well with Paulette. Maybe she did that for him. Nice small role of the San Francisco [the setting] cable car conductor played by Barry Fitzgerald. I have a poster of this film featuring Paulette leaning up against Tufts who has got to be at least six foot five. Well paced and directed by Mark Sandrich. Not on VHS or Television, I got this on tape through Video Finders, a great source for old films you can't find anywhere.
