Much better than anticipated, strong performances all around. A well scripted and shot, thoughtful look upon the times to be shortly at hand then. Depending on your view, it can be very self serving to america at the time, or it my be a very gripping and a strongly uplifting film about human nature and the powers belonging to acceptance and optimism. This film, despite the content and much to the director/casts credit, seems to lack the cheesyness of most of the similar films of the period. I would largly own this up to the fluid and seemingly candid acting of Betty Field and the young girl, and Freddy March's strong but not overbearing performance. Easily one of my favorite films; being in my opinion one of the best films of the "war era", and I would anticipate it being one of yours as well.
