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 »

One of my favorites!
12 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just a young girl when I saw this movie for the first time. It was so moving and so sad that I never forgot it. The acting may seem alittle corny in this day and age but the story is wonderful, and the cast was excellent. I lost count how many times I've watched it over the years, I finally own a copy of it although its on VHS it's nice to know I can watch it again whenever I want. Would be nice if it was released on DVD. This is also one of my favorite Van Johnson movies. If I could compare it to a modern day movie that would be "Message in a Bottle" with Kevin Costner. Although it didn't have a miraculous ending it was a story of finding love and losing it so suddenly. If you like tear-jerkers both of these movies would fit the bill.
