self-serious and wildly sentimental, it still manages to work, due in large part to the delicate cinematography. even coop's typically stiff performance seems appropriate in this otherworldly tale of lovers who meet in dreams. 'the strangest things are true and the truest things are strange'More
Odd semi fantasy film has a good performance from a dashing Gary Cooper to recommend it but the pacing is off. The mood is too earthbound to make it haunting and too celestial for a standard telling. Part of the problem is that Ann Harding while a fine actress is miscast as the object of Gary's lifelong desire, a more ethereal performer was required, Merle Oberon would have been perfect. The appearance of an almost unrecognizable Ida Lupino as a bit of Cockney baggage is a treat but she's in and out of the film in under fifteen minutes.More
