Lucas Thomas's grandmother Caroline returns every Valentine's Day to the station where, at their then first wedding anniversary, she waved off to the pacific war theatre in 1944 naval pilot Neil, officially still missing in action. Lucas, a former baseball star and reputable physiotherapist about to publish, tells the story to a station manager, who assigns the item to Susan Allison. She gets involved and befriends Caroline, but resists her crush on Lucas on account of an already soulless engagement with international reporter Andrew Hawthorne. Caroline's mild cardiac crisis seems to ruin everything. Written by
In the opening scene where various servicemen are getting ready to board the train, the marine uniforms have post-WWII enlisted rank insignia. The marines did not use the crossed-rifles device in rank insignia until many years after the war. See more »
What an outstanding movie about a difficult time in history. Everyone in the cast displayed excellent acting abilities; absolutely believable. The people at Hallmark earn my business with their outstanding contributions - this being one of them, and one of the best.
I really like Ms. White and she does (as the rest of the cast) a marvelous job...I would very much like to think of her in real life as this character, NOT what I have seen on Saturday Night Live or Lake Placid. She does not need vulgarity to be a great actress, especially in her twilight years...
Only glaring mistakes - watch for them - using the small 50-star flags in a few scenes instead of the 48-star flag, correct for the period. And as for the Philippine village scene, well it looks like the tropical rain-forest about as much as my back yard in Indiana!!! These are very small nit-picky things in comparison to how fantastic and enjoyable this movie was. Thank you Hallmark, you always send out "The Very Best"!!!
