Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Champion of all the cities of the earth is the towering golden city of New York. It looms higher than any town of man before. Within its giant walls and steel sinews are more enterprises, more people, more mystery, and more music than were ever known before. Its windows are like the leaves of a mighty forest, and its streets are filled with wonder. Our story begins on a spring morning in May 1942 as the people of this remarkable city start to live and work another day.

One of my favorites!
12 September 2006 | by debbsgate-1See all my reviews

I was just a young girl when I saw this movie for the first time. It was so moving and so sad that I never forgot it. The acting may seem alittle corny in this day and age but the story is wonderful, and the cast was excellent. I lost count how many times I've watched it over the years, I finally own a copy of it although its on VHS it's nice to know I can watch it again whenever I want. Would be nice if it was released on DVD. This is also one of my favorite Van Johnson movies. If I could compare it to a modern day movie that would be "Message in a Bottle" with Kevin Costner. Although it didn't have a miraculous ending it was a story of finding love and losing it so suddenly. If you like tear-jerkers both of these movies would fit the bill.
