The film version of This Above all is a lovely romance that takes place during World War II in England. Clive Briggs is a deserter who falls for an upper class woman, Prudence, who is serving in the womens air corps. Clive was an excellent soldier, but became discouraged with the country's class structure keeping people down and in the end, didn't know what he was fighting for. Though its style is a little dated, with Fontaine doing a big monologue about England. the acting is strong. This was a departure for Tyrone Power and would have led to more challenging roles for him had the war not intervened. The book "This Above All" was very graphic sexually; alas, the film has none of that.

The always radiant Joan Fontaine steals the screen again & dons the uniform of the WRAF/WAAF's in this classic film of 1940's flag waving propaganda. Keep the home fires burning.

Stolid soaper miscasts Ty as an English deserter, he exerts zero effort to seem British, and saddles Joan Fontaine with a lot of flag waving speeches which stop the film dead in it's tracks. Professionally made with a good supporting cast but uninvolving.

Well produced story of a conscientious objector (Tyrone Power) and his romance with the wealthy Joan Fontaine. Excellent Academy Award winning art direction and also nominated for cinematoghraphy, editing and sound.Great story, but I found it dragged a little in parts. Joan Fontaine is lovely, Tyrone Power is pretty good, he was never regarded as a great actor, because he isn't, but he isn't bad either.
