I saw This 1945 Movie on TCM and loved it. If it was available on DVD I would own it. It's a heartfelt story with June Allyson "Leslie O'Dell" as an invalid that lives in the same apartment building and is secretly in love with Robert Walker "Jimmy Dobson" who works as a clumsy bellboy in a posh hotel. Hedy Lamarr "Princess Veronica" is a beautiful princess that is staying at the hotel where he works as the bellhop. This cute fantasy thickens as he is assigned to take care of the princess's needs, and develops a crush on the princess. Agnes Moorehead "Countess Zoe", is the princess's watchdog who is very protective of her. The Princess is really in love with a columnist. This is where a little light situation comedy occurs, but, the real true love wins out with June Allyson, at the end.
This picture also features a song "Honey" which back in 1928, Rudy Vallee had a hit with. I wish I could get a copy of June Allyson's rendition of it, she did in the flick, no soundtrack is available.
