Now Playing - "I'll Be Seeing You"

Here's an ad for "I'll Be Seeing You" (1944), which we covered in this previous post.  We've got the soldier, the beautiful girl, and a hint of scandal (prison) and romantic intrigue one wartime Christmas.  But, we smack a great big photo of teenaged Shirley Temple in case the names of Selznick, Cotten, and Rogers aren't enough.  Always hedge your bets.

Don't know this film at all, but then I was not a big Ginger Rogers fan unless Fred Astaire was somewhere close by. The only Ginger Rogers (on her own) film I remember liking was the preposterous THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR with Ray Milland. LOVE that film. I am, however, a big Joe Cotton fan. My mother adored him and I guess her fervor rubbed off on me. I'll have to keep an eye out for this film, Jacqueline.

Hi, Yvette. I hope you can see it sometime, though I don't think it's shown very often. It's sad and sweet. I think Joseph Cotten is particularly impressive.
