A homely maid and a scarred ex-GI meet at the cottage where she works and where he was to spend his honeymoon prior to his accident. The two develop a bond and agree to marry, more out of loneliness than love. The romantic spirit of the cottage, however, overtakes them. They soon begin to look beautiful to each other, but no one else. Written by

Some of those boys are really out of this world and I must say who ever designed the uniforms for this war was certainly cooking on the front burner.
They're just the cutest bunch of boys. I can't imagine, can you, where do they keep them between wars?

I've taped this movie in the black and white and the colorized version, which is no longer seen on TCM. If you want to forget your troubles in a movie and escape for a couple of hours into a "magical" time that no longer exists, watch this movie. Definitely a "chick flick", I think, but a wonderful one at that. The music is haunting, the views of the cottage and it's surroundings make you wish for a time that we can no longer go back to, a time of a simpler life, with no technology, and values were different. The story is like a fairy tale set to real life, where dreams come true in the end. I never get tired of watching it. Good acting especially by the supporting cast. Robert Young didn't look so bad even with his scars, and Dorothy McGuire fit the part. Ladies! Watch this flick if you're into old classic movies and don't mind a bit of corniness. . .
