Simple, yet this movie captures your emotions and grips your heart. Beautiful Loretta Young. Robert Michum and William Holden, handsome and rugged. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to fall in love in another time and place, this movie is for you. You will forget what year it is, and will long to live with them. At times your heart will be torn into, not knowing what is going to happen next. I still smile, my chest still swells up and a slow breath comes every time I think of this movie. Thank you Rachel and the Strangers.

I first saw this movie on TV and loved it! I was eventually able to make a copy but lost it somewhere during the following years. Been looking to buy one if I could just find one! I think I may finally be in luck! This is a great love story with lots of ups and downs, danger, and exciting episodes, with a little history and comedy thrown in. You might call this a "chic" flick, but I think most men would enjoy it too. Loretta Young, William Holden and Robert Mitchum are great in their parts even if you're too young to remember them as film stars. They were among the best!
