1920. Three years gone. Three years. France - I remember distinctly. But after that - what after that? Liverpool - what am I doing here? Where have I been? Better go home. Yes - may clear things up. Better go home - .

I've always said that for me the three best films ever made are "Random Harvest", "Waterloo Bridge" and "The Ghost and Mrs Muir". I'm very pleased to check that I'm not the only who has this kind of feeling. Random Harvest is an outstanding film made in an era when the most important features were proper use of language, dialogues, looks, music... In Random Harvest all of these ingredients are mixed to result in a master piece. Ronald Colman is superb. He plays to perfection the aristocratic role of Smithy/Charles, aristocratic when he is a humble writer and aristocratic when he plays the role of a member of Parliament. Greer Garson plays a lovely Paula/Margaret, patient, noble and guileless. They are not young in this film but it is also one of the best attractions in this film: love is never old enough. There are some culminating points in this film, but the highest ones for me are: 1. When Ronald Colman is going to marry Susan Peters (another lovely actress) and they are choosing the hymns for the ceremony. Whe he listens the same hymn they played in his previous wedding (the lovely O perfect love) he stares Susan Peters in a indescribable way that says everything. And 2. The final scene (indescribable, you must see it to feel how your soul moves). One thousand times I'll see the film one thousand times I'll tremble. Thanks everybody who made possible that wonder! thank you very much!
