Movie Info

This romantic fantasy was based on a popular play by Arthur Pinero. Oliver Bradford (Robert Young) is a young man who returned from World War II with severe facial scars; while he was engaged to be married before he left, he believes that no one could love him now, and he lives on the brink of suicide. Oliver meets Laura Pennington (Dorothy McGuire), a plain young woman who is convinced that her looks will never win her a man. These two lonely people marry, more out of desperation than love, and

Shouldn't be missed.

Might have been just another run-of-the-mill midcentury romance, except for the bold way it depicts the debilitating effects of World War II on the very face and body of its male star.

Sensitive, occasionally touching romantic fable, well directed by John Cromwell and well acted by Robert Young and Dorothy McGuire.

Audience Reviews for The Enchanted Cottage

The Enchanted Cottage takes place in the foggy and ephemeral world of the 1940s hollywood movie. There is definitely a dreamy quality to the film (as though it were filmed through a cotton-covered lense). A homely maid comes to work at a honeymoon cottage that is said to be enchanted. She falls in love with the scarred air force pilot who had meant to use the cottage as his honeymoon suite before his marriage plans fell apart due to his post war depression. As the two fall in love, their physical deformities seem to disappear, and both of them begin to believe in the magic of the enchanted cottage. The film is so earnest and sincere it's tough to put it down for being a little hokey. No one can get over how ugly these two are, and yet there are people in the world (even in the 1940s) who've managed to get together even with the extreme handicap of slight homeliness. Maybe the premise is a little flawed, but it's the execution that matters.
