Storyline

Mary Marshall, serving a six year term for accidental manslaughter, is given a Christmas furlough from prison to visit her closest relatives, her uncle and his family in a small Midwestern town. On the train she meets Zach Morgan, a troubled army sergeant on leave for the holidays from a military hospital. Although his physical wounds have healed, he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and is subject to panic attacks. The pair are attracted to one another and in the warm atmosphere of the Christmas season friendship blossoms into romance, but Mary is reluctant to tell him of her past and that she must shortly return to prison to serve the remainder of her sentence.

Mr. Marshall: Good night. Don't forget to turn out the lights, Sarah.
Mrs. Marshall: All right, dear. So don't worry about making a scene.

A heart warming drama
28 December 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Although I enjoyed the talents of Ginger Rogers more in her infamous teamings with Fred Astaire, and her comic abilities in the Katharine Hepburn movie "Stage Door", she cannot at least be given some credit for her fine dramatic acting as well, of which pleasantly surprised me. Her portrayal a woman convicted for manslaughter, is inspirational, as her character helps a suffering soldier find solace, while attempting to hide the secret she dreads will threaten his full recovery.

With Joseph Cotten and Shirley Temple in the supporting cast, the movie is nonetheless up to mainstream Hollywood standards. I did find that the movie was a little light on the drama in some parts, in comparison to later Hollywood films like Audrey Hepburn's "The Nun's Story", but the romance story was lovely.

Definitely a must for Ginger Rogers fans, and fans of a good old fashioned Hollywood flick in the best style that they just don't make anymore. Rating: 8/10
