This movie, made during the war, shows the other side of the coin from soldiers shooting things up and being heros. Our heros are passing through Pasadena heading from one theater to another.
I was hooked from the opening of this movie, and almost missed an appointment to see the ending. The plot is predictable, but that's the whole point. Our boys were still fighting the war when this film was made, and it had a message for both the soldiers, and the women they left behind. The dysfunctional family is well portrayed, and the actors are all belivable. Small slices of small town life are peppered into the action, and the theme is that love prevails.
I was surprised that the younger sister Ellie never went on to any other acting, she was funny, smart, and cute as a button.
Make sure you bring a hankie, and watch it with someone you love. You'll thank me later.
