I enjoyed this so much that I want to try to find a copy so I can enjoy it again. I wasn't familiar with Evelyn Keyes but she was a beautiful actress from the 40's. Glenn Ford looks very young and handsome in this film as well. He plays an aloof type and his character wasn't my favorite in the movie. But the movie kept my attention from the beginning. It's sweet and compassionate and keeps you guessing about how it will pan out. It's wholesome yet flirty and is a great movie to keep you entertained when you need to relax. It's a chick flick so I'm not sure how men would relate to it. I highly recommend it, and therefore rated it an excellent film. If you have the opportunity, see it.
