Trivia

Franz Waxman composed the score for this film. The theme he used when Jane Wyman's character first enters her New York office was used by George Lucas for his first feature film, THX 1138 (1971). The music was heard in the futuristic shopping mall sequence as "elevator music." See more »

Goofs

Most of the cars in this film were period correct for the WW2 setting, but occasionally cars of later vintage are seen, including a couple of 1955 Chevrolets, and a 1955 Cadillac limousine. See more »

Life Can Be So Cruel....But We Can Still Hope For Miracles
29 January 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's been a long time since I've watched a movie and shed tears but this movie clinched it! What a beautiful film - it certainly plays with your emotions in such a poignant way. Jane Wyman's brilliant, grief-stricken performance makes your heart simply melt with sorrow and watching Johnson's impeccable performance made me forget that I have never been a Van Johnson fan; credit to him for a splendid, utterly emotive portrayal of the character he played in this film. These two leads and the supporting cast played their roles to perfection and I was so consumed that I failed to remember that they were actually acting.

The storyline of this film had me absorbed from the beginning through to its exquisite ending; it left me covered in goose bumps and literally I felt numb as the chills ran through me! Most significantly though, this film profoundly made me feel how important and precious my loved ones are to me as it helped nudge my dormant realisation that the uncertainty of life always surrounds us....we must not take anyone for granted and we must not take life and "faith" for granted.

As you have noticed I did not relate the plot of this movie as other reviewers have more or less done so. All I can say is that you should do yourself a favour and view this film - this is one film you need to watch at least once in your lifetime (and feel those chills and goose bumps!)....SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL.
