Movie Diary 12/28/2010

Random Harvest (Mervyn LeRoy, 1942). Ronald Colman the amnesiac ex-soldier, Greer Garson the woman who keeps prodding his memory. MGM gloss and some very potent moments that stretch across time. The saga of what happened to the second female lead, Susan Peters (who married future director Richard Quine and was almost immediately paralyzed in a hunting accident), is even more haunting and tragic than what this movie is aiming for.
