Audience Reviews for Identity Unknown

This Film made in 1945 by Republic Pictures. It?s a wonder film about a solider ( played by Richard Arlen, star of the silent epic, WINGS, ) who returns back to the United States suffering from amnesia. He was found in a bombed out farm house in France with 3 other men who were killed and beyond recognition. So he has a list of 4 names who he can possibly be. After going AWOL he travels to the home of the 4 names. At the first address, he meets Sally MacGregor (Cheryl Walker), who is now a young widow. "Johnny" falls in love with Sally, and that only heightens the importance of his mission to learn who he is - after all, he might have a wife waiting for him at home, along the way he falls in love with a girl. On his second visit he is greeted by a child (played by . Bobby Driscoll, the talented child star in this time frame). For the time frame it?s a great coming home from war story. I got this film in the Mill Creek Combat Classics 50 Pack Its worth all of 4 stars. The highest I have given to any movie in this collection so far.

Interesting and thought provoking war related drama. Fine performance from Richard Arlen. Good writing and it movies along fast and is not too long.
