A Romance Novel in Disguise as a Holiday Movie
Love, love. love this one- who wouldn’t? Some of the best actors/singers of the era and Danny Kaye is just a hoot. He’s such fun! I watch this over and over. In fact, when VHS first came on the scene and videos were $100.00, this is the first one I ever bought (or I talked my mom into buying!)- she got the display copy and it was half price or she’d have never gotten it for me!
This story is a typical romance cliche, but I love it. Boy meets girl, boy wins girl, boy loses girl, boy wins girl back!!
AND I always get chills when the general comes in at the end and the men salute him.
