Friday through Sunday
One of the great movies about WW II is set entirely on the home front. Claudette Colbert is very touching as the mother of Jennifer Jones and Shirley Temple, helping her daughters grow up while their father is away at war.
The glorious Monty Woolley provides the necessary vinegar to balance Joseph Cotten's amiability.
David O. Selznick wrote the script himself and lovingly produced it with his own trademarked aura of quality. Highly recommended.
