All of those handsome young men in their flying machines are billeted in a field next to the Widow Berthelot's farmhouse in France. Her daughter Jeannine is curious about the young men fighting for England in World War I and their airplanes. Then one of the aviators is killed. His replacement is Captain Philip Blythe who can't help but notice Jeannine. When he lands the first time, she is standing in the middle of his "runway." She makes a more favorable impression when he sees her later by the lilacs. When all of the young men depart on a mission, Blythe promises to return.Written by

I cannot let you go, my Philip - I cannot let you go.
Capt. Philip Blythe:
Jeannie, I'll come back no matter what happens. I will get back somehow.
I will wait for you, my Philip - all my life I'll wait here for you.
Goodbye, Lilac Time, my very heart says - je t'aime - I love you - I love you.

How great can a film be? This is one of the answers to that. Sweet Colleen Moore and Gary Cooper are a perfect couple, and Lilac Time a perfect love story. Forget Titanic! Bring a handkerchief when you see this.
