Storyline

Mary Marshall, serving a six year term for accidental manslaughter, is given a Christmas furlough from prison to visit her closest relatives, her uncle and his family in a small Midwestern town. On the train she meets Zach Morgan, a troubled army sergeant on leave for the holidays from a military hospital. Although his physical wounds have healed, he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and is subject to panic attacks. The pair are attracted to one another and in the warm atmosphere of the Christmas season friendship blossoms into romance, but Mary is reluctant to tell him of her past and that she must shortly return to prison to serve the remainder of her sentence.

Quotes

Mrs. Marshall: You haven't changed, Mary. Not at all.
Mary Marshall: Thank you, Aunt Sarah. Oh, it's so good to be here.
Mrs. Marshall: I'm so glad to have you with us, dear. Awfully glad. Barbara, come on down! You can share Barbara's room.
Mary Marshall: Oh, dear, I don't want to disturb anybody. I, don't ...
Mrs. Marshall: Oh, nonsense. Barbara will love to have you. Here, for heaven's sake, give me your coat. Anyway, it's the guest room, or it was before Barbara was born. Besides, I think it would be a very good thing for Barbara. She's seventeen.

Found myself crying like an idiot...I love old-fashioned romances
15 February 2011 | by applenia88See all my reviews

There's nothing I can say....usual sentimental torture...Gosh I love this stuff! Some will find it a bit old-fashioned in timing and plot. I'm maybe old-fashioned myself, but I think the story is very beautiful. Ginger Rogers is (she's one of my favorites!) really good, a very underrated actress of that time...she could do anything and do it fine, with class and elegance. A real dramatic performer. Haven't seen Cotten before, he's a fine actor too! I like his reflective way of acting, the postures he takes when the voice comes in his head, which is a good idea of the director I guess...very effective, drags you into the character's inner feelings. They make a fine couple! But the real surprise is a grown Shirley Temple, whom can carry herself very well in drama too, a bit too exaggerate in the gestures, sometimes too simpering, after all she's an adolescent, but very good indeed! In the end I highly recommend this movie to everyone who hasn't seen it yet. For me (remember, I'm old-fashioned) rating is 10/10!
