Irene Dunne, Roddy McDowall, Van Johnson and Dame May Whitty lead an all-star cast in this filmed interpretation of Alice Duer Miller's poem, set against the geographical site of many wars fought in England. When Susan (Dunne) moves with her father (Frank Morgan) from America to England, she ends up falling in love with and marrying Sir John Ashwood (Alan Marshal), an English baronet. But, before their son is born, Susan loses her husband to World War I. When World War II breaks out years later, her son’s own tour of duty begins. Finding out whether he will return home safely or not makes for some of the most dramatic moments in motion picture history. The "Numerous gems in the uniformly excellent supporting cast" (The Hollywood Reporter) include Roddy McDowall and Peter Lawford as young John at different ages, Dame May Whitty, and C. Aubrey Smith. A compelling, beautifully acted film for all audiences.
