  • Based on the novel by James Hilton (whose LOST HORIZON and GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS had already been made into profitable films), this lavish MGM show features Ronald Colman as a soldier who has lost his memory. He escapes from the hospital to find himself alone on the streets as the public cheers the end of World War I. Showgirl Paula, played by showstopper Greer Garson, takes home the handsome amnesiac, and the two start a blissful marriage while leading a life of poverty. But when Colman is hit by a car, he regains his memory from before the war while losing all records of the events since--including his marriage to Garson. Colman resumes his life as aristocrat Charles Rainier while Garson takes on a fictitious identity to become his secretary, hoping that one day he will recognize her for his wife. This blockbuster romance directed by the great Mervyn LeRoy survives today on the heat the two stars emanate for each other.
