very emotional love story
27 July 2001 | by (Reno, Nevada) – See all my reviews

I was 9 years old when I first saw this movie. I am 64 years old now and I have never forgotten the feeling I had when I saw Young Widow. I was too young to understand the feeling of Love, but it effected me enough that I have never forgotten the movie or the actors and I have not seen Young Widow since 1946.
