This wonderful WW2-era film,a "homefront" storyline which yet touches greatly on the (effects of the) battlefront, may include a meeting on a train, but there any similarity to another film ends. This is based on a story "Double Furlough", and Ginger Rogers is aptly cast as the young woman on a prison leave, while Joseph Cotten is superb as the much decorated GI who has paid the "psychoneurotic" sacrifice for his valor; Shirley Temple simply shines as the teenage daughter of the home. The touching aspects, including respect and longing for home, the loveliness of this "average" home, welcoming meals and courteous mannered discussions and all, as well as the zesty outlook lent by Miss Temple (approx. 16 years old, and gorgeous), are so well staged and photographed, as to make the viewer seem to be there...Realistic is the word for much of the story, which never pretends that the characters involved are necessarily perfect, while even the costuming lends to the character interprtation. Never "homeboud", the screenplay takes one "out and about", and the beautiful (theme)song "I'll Be Seeing You" adds more lustre to an already elegant filmaking effort.
This is an absolutely wonderful movie!!! Ginger Rogers at her best!! It takes place at Christmas time so it is always a Christmas favorite for me. Joseph Cotten plays a shell shocked soldier who meets Ginger Rogers on a train where she is headed for a good behavior leave from prison. Surprisingly, Shirley Temple plays the somewhat spoiled daughter of Ginger's Aunt and Uncle and she turns in a great performance. It is just a touching, sweet, romantic movie. One of my faves!!
This is the BEST romantic film I have ever seen! Two people fall in love at first sight, but the barriers to their relationship are quite serious and real, as opposed to most films where the obstacles are contrived. At the end of her brief vacation, Mary (Ginger Rogers) must return to prison for three years. There's no way around this --- and if she tells her new boyfriend, will he reject her? Rogers displays the perfect combination of toughness and vulnerability. Beneath her beauty there is a hard edge that makes you believe she has really spent the past three years in prison. Shirley Temple is perfectly cast as Mary's teenaged cousin. Best of all, Mary and Zack (Joseph Cotten) behave as if they truly, deeply love each other; they don't have juvenile tantrums at the first sign that the other may be less than perfect. The dress-shop scene is humorous and there are other scenes that will make you cry. Overall excellent!
My favorite dramatic holiday movie, it's better than It's a Wonderful Life. Since it's a drama not a comedy, it can't be compared with A Christmas Story.
