Ester Williams plays Cynthia a Newly Wed about to go on her honey moon when her Husband is called away. SHe findscomfort in Van Johnson, a soldier.
5 February 2002 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the most fabulous movie I have ever seen. Its unfortunate that it has been discontinued and one can't but it. Anyway it is a delightfully charming movie. Its romantic, funny, and you will wish it never had to end. Esther Williams is delightful in this movie, where she plays Cynthia, and weds and very busy man, who is suddenly and unexpectedly called away during their honeymoon. Lonely she finds friendship in Van Johnson (unaware of her marriage at first), as they spend an increasing amount of time together, feelings develop and romance ensue. To see what happens, you will have to watch it!
