Movie Info

Martin Greer (Dana Andrews), a World War II veteran, is asked by a local businessman to write a letter requesting that his son, George Kress Jr. (Martin Milner), avoid being drafted into the Korean War and remain working for the family's company. Greer, however, refuses to write a letter on his behalf to the draft board. When his brother, Jack (Farley Granger), who should be exempt because of a knee injury, is the next in line to be drafted, Greer is faced with a difficult decision.

Audience Reviews for I Want You

  • Jul 16, 2022
    Don't overlook this well written story about serving the call to duty and repressed love. There's two scenes I particularly admired. The first is a titillating romance scene with actors Farley Granger and Peggy Dow. The other is a stinging rebuke (by Dorothy McGuire) of a young man's (Granger) reluctance to serve. Recruitment propaganda? Yes. Effective: Definitely.
