Storyline

A despondent, lonely, and near-suicidal Chicago businessman and veteran WWII pilot is enticed to attend the 40th reunion of his old bombardment group in England. His recent professional and personal failures are briefly set aside as he and an unlikely companion travel to Fairborough and renew old memories. The romantic promise of rediscovered love is intruded upon by modern realities as the drama unfolds. Written by Mark Rice

Much more than a romance
16 March 2003 | by (Salem, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I watched this for the first time in 2003, during a time when it seems the whole world was angry at the U.S. for its "militarism." It was fascinating to be reminded that this isn't the first time we were accused of this. The story could have taken place today ... so much has not changed (okay, the lead characters would have been a LOT older!!!).

The story itself was a sweet love story, and the acting is first rate (Red Buttons, as always, is a scene stealer). But the social commentary is what intrigued me and made this movie such a winner.
