One Of Jane Russell's Best!
6 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jane Russell (Joan Kenwood) plays a young wife who has just lost her husband in the war. She goes through a range of emotions as she tries to deal with her loss and tries to find her place in life.

Jane was wonderful and handled a complex role like a Pro. Remember This was only her 2nd movie. You had the feeling she was a tried veteran. Mrs. Russell was made for the camera.

Louis Hayward Plays (Lt. Jim Cameron). He falls in love with Joan the moment he laid eyes on her. He soon finds out her tragic story. Louis was a great choice as the (new) man. They really worked well together. The inner play between the two was magical. This really was a well crafted motion picture, Well worth your time.

For some reason It has never been release to the public on VHS or DVD. I was able to get a copy from someone who had an original copy of the 35mm film. This movie needs to be made available!!!
