In the last days of WWII, an American journalist (Lana Turner) falls quickly and deeply in love with a British reporter (Sean Connery). Just as she begins planning their future together, he admits he's already married.
This romance/melodrama is worth watching for the very young and charismatic Connery and the equally young and talented Glynis Johns, who plays his wife. Lana Turner, on the other hand, makes the movie almost unwatchable. Her platinum hair, thick make-up, and glamorous wardrobe don't fit a wartime correspondent and her acting is terrible. Every line is delivered in a breathy, petulant voice with indulgent/silly over-acting. Several supporting actors, including Barry Sullivan, are excellent, but Lana almost destroys the movie. I've watched it twice and fell asleep both times. (Re-watching it was a chore.)
The black and white movie is partially filmed in a charming English village but stock footage and fake outdoor sets detract greatly; the overall look is cheap. A silly, overwrought script that never really touches the heart makes this a movie for Sean Connery fans only.
