Random Harvest

Lions, Towers & Shields 24: Mistimed Sobs

We go full-on romance classic with Random Harvest (1942), starring the luminous Greer Garson and the handsome and very English Ronald Colman (she’s Irish.) It’s a golden age, big studio production, and it’s great. There’s love, there’s war (or the aftermath of war), there’s loss of memory… I’ve said too much already. I unreservedly love this one, and not for any knowing precode touches or hard-boiled characters. I love it because Garson and Colman are great together and it made me cry and stuff.

Shelly Brisbin with Deborah Stanish, Frank Feuerbacher, Mois├ęs Chiullan, Erika Ensign and Annette Wierstra
