Dennis Morgan and Eleanor Parker star in this wonderful World War 11 film how a weekend meeting between a soldier and a girl lead to marriage and brief happiness. The best part is that there is a wonderful ending.
Morgan comes home to Parker's family-a bickering one. Andrea King plays Parker's sister, who tired of waiting for her husband to come home, has been playing the field. She too realizes that she is wrong when her husband comes home unscathed from the war.
Morgan and Parker have a perfect screen chemistry. The picture would be considered corny by today's standards. We need more films of this quality. These war pictures searched for true meaning in the lives of people at home during the war at a time their men and women were serving. This is certainly a wonderful prelude to 1946's "The Best Years of Our Lives."
