Having first seen this movie as a small child on TV I was amazed at the fact that Emily really did die in the play. It seemed to me that it was all the more moving that she did live as this movie was done prior to World War II and was probably intended as an affirmation of life.

A wonderful movie and I wish we had more of them.
