Double Dream
13 April 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Reginald Owen plays Herbert Blakely, one of many British citizens doing their patriotic duty protecting the home front in 1940, as the Nazis are threatening invasion, but Herbert also must face his fear that his wife Ethel(played by Molly Roden) has been killed in their London home after a Luftwaffe bombing, though as it will turn out, Ethel has a similar dream about him being killed by a Nazi soldier at his outpost station! Can Herbert reach his wife in time, or are they both doomed? Good period atmosphere by director John Newland helps this otherwise standard tale of precognition, further helped by a good cast, with two older romantic leads.
