Orphan Joe Kelly has an idyllic youth growing up in the country with his grandpa, and can turn his hobby into his profession as crop spray plane pilot. After Pearl Harbor, he joins the US Air Force as bomber pilot. Joe's wife Claire is notified he's missing, presumed killed when his plane is shot down over Germany. Later a military mate reports he saw Joe alive, apparently taken POW.

The plane at the airfield where Tommy is working circa 1946 is marked "United States Air Force". This term was not used until September 1947. Until that time the branch was called the United States Army Air Forces. Additionally, army air force planes at the time were never labeled as such, instead using insignias for identification such as the ones shown on the B-24. See more »

User Reviews

Definitely not a good romantic movie...
18 January 2008 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

While not dreadful Beautiful Dreamer is so clichéd and just predicable that it fails on every front.

A simple tale of childhood love, that grew up, and get married. He then goes off to the Second World War and loses his memory (or has dissociative personality disorder) anyhoo he does not remember his previous life. When his wife's car breaks down and finds him in a small town, and he cannot remember her, there follows the inevitable tale of discovery and love reborn.

We normally love romantic movies but this is too simple to really shine. The camera and lighting are all pretty basic and it all looks and feels like to belongs instantly on Hallmark.

I cannot recommend this: it is just to saccharine, and the script lacks any depth of its complicated topic - all in all it felt barely OK, and barely romantic: just too predictable, linear, and made for TV values to shine.

Sorry...not one for the heart or brain...
