Though I had never heard of this film before seeing it listed on a television guide, I decided to view it because of its cast.
Just the idea of seeing a movie with Lauren Bacall and Anthony Quinn was enough for me to get into this mature film. Their scenes together are precious as they remember their love affair and separation due to World War 2.
Supporting cast members of Aumont and Kedrova added to the pleasantness of the film.
While watching the childhood black and white flashbacks I noticed that the young man portraying Anthony Quinn had a striking resemblance to the older Quinn. Only when the credits were shown did I realize that it was indeed Quinn's son, Francesco. Though the young woman also resembled Lauran Bacall, there was no family relationship between them.
If you want to watch a good old-fashioned romantic film, watch "A Star For Two."
