Truly Delightful !!
9 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is delightful and uplifting, what a great WWII story. It was refreshing to watch compared to most of what is offered to us today. Dennis Morgan is one of my favorite actors and his voice was fabulous, even though he did not sing in this one. Although, I wondered if it was him singing the title song playing on the car radio in a scene with him and Eleanor Parker. Eleanor Parker was terrific as usual, her character's family was definitely dysfunctional, which certainly made the story more interesting. I always enjoy Eleanor Parker movies. Dane Clark was a delight in this one, he was always able to play very different roles and characters. The morals depicted in the story are ones that we find little of in today's movies. The really wonderful thing about this one, for me, is the happy ending. There was no violence, offensive language, or objectionable sexual content. I was sorry to see it end, because it made me want to see more. I would love to see this come out on video or DVD.
