    Was there ever an actress more intelligent, more beautiful, than Irene Dunne? And never an Oscar winner. This one's a little hokey, but a beautiful double love story. The movie that made Van Johnson a star.

    Overtly sentimental and gooey. A Guy Named Joe is a product of its era. It's a film that's a cut above Spielberg's 1989 remake ("Always") but just barely. With a cast that includes Spencer Tracy, Van Johnson and Irene Dunne I expected more. Its a good film, with it's own merit and character, but with a cast like that it could be/should be better.
