The first time I ever saw this wonderful film I was about twelve. It was late at night and everyone else had gone to bed and I was thinking maybe I should too, but then this came on and I was hooked. I've seen this film many times since then and yet each time I watch it again it never fails to get an emotional response out of me i.e I ball my eyes out!...and us Brits have a stiff upper lip you know! They just don't make them like they used too and that's a shame.It's a great storyline, great acting and the line 'poor uncle wiggly' isn't dead in our house! Dana Andrews is yummy in it too. I cannot recommend this film strongly enough..watch it and it will always stay with you.
