Crosby at his best!
19 June 2001 | by tophocaSee all my reviews

Why this film has been neglected over the years is hard to understand. This is not quite what you would expect from Crosby in that it is a superb dramatic acting role for him. In my opinion Crosby is more convincing in this film than he was in "The Country Girl."

The story is about an American war reporter who returns to Paris after the war to look for his lost son. Lovely shots of Paris and great acting from all concerned. A real tearjerker from start to finish.

Recently played on Turkish T.V. surely one of the video companies will make this available to the public. Otherwise I would suggest a mass exodus to Turkey, it really is that good!
