Based on the novel by James Hilton (whose LOST HORIZON and GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS had already been made into profitable films), this lavish MGM show features Ronald Colman as a soldier who has lost his memory. He escapes from the hospital to find himself alone on the streets as the public cheers the end of World War I. Showgirl Paula, played by showstopper Greer Garson, takes home the handsome amnesiac, and the two start a blissful marriage while leading a life of poverty. But when Colman is hit by a car, he regains his memory from before the war while losing all records of the events since--including his marriage to Garson. Colman resumes his life as aristocrat Charles Rainier while Garson takes on a fictitious identity to become his secretary, hoping that one day he will recognize her for his wife. This blockbuster romance directed by the great Mervyn LeRoy survives today on the heat the two stars emanate for each other.
For anyone who can appreciate a great story, this is a movie for you. Turn off your phone, lock the door, pop the popcorn, then settle in your favorite spot, because this movie will keep you glued to the screen.
Another of Greer Garson's splendid movies! It is easy to see why it received seven Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture)! BUY IT and enjoy!!
Hope to see some of Greer Garson's other great movies -- "The Valley of Decision," "Blossoms in the Dust," and "Scandal at Scourie" -- available soon on DVD!
