      Audience Member Don't overlook this well written story about serving the call to duty and repressed love. There's two scenes I particularly admired. The first is a titillating romance scene with actors Farley Granger and Peggy Dow. The other is a stinging rebuke (by Dorothy McGuire) of a young man's (Granger) reluctance to serve. Recruitment propaganda? Yes. Effective: Definitely. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a pretty decent movie considering it has two of my favorite actors in it, Dana Andrews and Farley Granger.
