One Sunday afternoon in the park, aspiring dentist Biff Grimes (Gary Cooper) meets a beauty (Fay Wray), falls heart over head in unrequited love, and ��� despite eventually marrying a pretty, steadfast girl ��� never stops wondering what might have been. Years later, Biff gets the chance to find out when he meets his would-be sweetheart again. Displaying the same all-American appeal that mark his memorable performances in such classics as Mr. Deeds Goes to Town and Sergeant York, Cooper makes James Hagan's hit play into endearing screen entertainment. Hollywood knew it had a good thing, remaking the film in 1941 as The Strawberry Blonde with James Cagney and as a musical in 1948 with Dennis Morgan.
