Review

Our Score
Over a quarter of a century after they made Heaven Knows, Mr Allison, Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr teamed up for the fourth time in this burnished tale of reunions and revelations. Originally made for American television but also given a cinema release, Herbert Wise's verbose melodrama centres on ex-GI Mitchum's return to the village where he'd been based during the war to discover that he not only fathered Kerr's child, but is also now a grandfather. Red Buttons and Barry Morse provide efficient support and Tony Imi's photography romanticises the rural locations. But the key is the easy rapport of the leads.

Summary

A retired American airman attends a reunion at his former posting in England, and is shocked to learn he is a father - and grandfather - thanks to a wartime fling with a local woman. Drama, starring Robert Mitchum, Deborah Kerr, Red Buttons and Barry Morse.
