I was only 2 years old when this movie was made, but thank goodness for cable I saw it. It was one of the most wonderful movies I've ever seen. Susan Hayward becomes Jane Froman. Jane Froman's life is a true inspiration to me. A lot of people would not have fought through what she did to walk. The music is music I grew up with at my grandparents. Embraceable You is one of my all time favorites. This is a feel good movie. The scene between Jane and the shell-shocked soldier, played by Robert Wagner, is incredible. You will marvel how Jane remembers this soldier from before the War, and re-connects with him. This movie might make you teary eyed, but it is wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
