"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on March 24, 1949 with David Niven, Teresa Wright and 'Jayne Meadows' reprising their film roles of General Roland Dane, Lark Ingoldsby and Selina Dane respectively. See more »
A melancholy love story that is a work of art. Flashbacks are often misused in movies but they are subtle and flow easily in "Enchantment", intertwining two stories. This tear-jerker flows from beginning to end
a masterpiece in every way. David Niven shows his acting skills both
as a dashing young officer and as the retired general (makeup is FANTASTIC!!) still carrying a torch. His facial expressions tell his portion of the story even better than the well-written lines given to his character. Jayne Meadows is the older sister you'll love to hate. Teresa Wright is a sweet unintentional heart-breaker with a voice to match. As wonderful as the acting is, the photography and lighting make this movie as magical as it is "Enchanting".
