Heartwrenching & thought provoking
4 March 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Oh the tangled webs we weave..when we set out to deceive.." A first rate film that doesn't pull any punches. Excellent acting by all in this, the point made that the coloured GI's were "welcomed" by the English who were going to make a point of showing some good old British hospitality to these guys regardless of the way they were treated back home. And that welcome turns to love & an affair between a coloured soldier & and a 'white' married English woman.....

The Billy Holiday music underscores a moving & thought provoking film but like others I rate this down one notch because the sex scenes were a little over done for a 1944 time period. We got the point & the passion the first time. Well worth watching though.
