a film well worth watching and a song that compliment the film
while i enjoyed seeing this film at least a dozen time,my memory always take me back to the first time i saw the in 1955 and it was the first war film i was allowed to watch,i fell in love with Lana turner and thought victor mature was a cad, well i was young and the actors were very convincing in their role. however my main comment is more like a question.., how can i obtain a recording of the song johnny come home? all i Learned from my searches that the voice belongs to that wonderful Diana Coupland, and no end of searches have led me to finding the song on the internet.to me the song gave the movie an atmosphere of what war is all about. but on the whole, its a movie i will watch whenever it is showing.
