This movie is a treasure. Gregory Peck is a real man who falls in love with a feminine woman. Their chemistry comes through the screen. If you love romance, the old fashioned way, you will love this flick. This film is one of those epic stories chopped down into something you can simply enjoy in one evening. The cast of characters are fabulous with Donald Crisp, John Barrymore, Greer Garson, Geregory Peck, and so many other outstanding character actors. If you are in the mood for a story with characters who stand for their beliefs and work hard at maintaining the American dream, this movie does not disappoint. Although Greer Garson is much older in reality than Gregory Peck's 25 years the black and white screen does not give it away and their romance is very believable.
