A soldier survives a bombing in which his three fellow soldiers were killed. When he recovers he discovers he has amnesia, and since his companions' bodies were burned beyond recognition, the army doesn't know which one of the four he is. He goes AWOL and searches out the families of the three dead soldiers, hoping to find out his own identity. Written by
Above average, sometimes moving wartime drama holds theinterest.
An interesting World War II psychological drama casting Richard Arlen, star of the silent epic, WINGS, as a soldier who survived a bombing in which three others, who were burned beyond recognition but who possessed similar physical descriptions, perished. Hospitalized, and suffering from amnesia as a result, he adopts the name of "Johnny March," goes AWOL, and sets out to visit the locales where service records indicated the four victims lived in hopes of establishing his identity. Especially poignant are his scenes with Bobby Driscoll, the talented child star, in one of his early roles. When "March" shows up at his doorstep, the boy believes him to be his father, who is missing in action. I give this film a rating of three out of a possible five stars.
