BLAST FROM THE PAST
A. J. Jewler | Columbia, SC | 04/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This amazing saga--even more amazing, considering that it was filmed during World War II in England, is a tantalizing tale of a man's whole life--from youth to old age--and his loves, all of whom turn out to be played by the marvelous Deborah Kerr. The restoration is up to Criterion's high standards and the Technicolor is delicious. For fun and a look into our past, watch this movie."
