Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Do you know you haven't said a word since we left the restaurant? You don't talk very much, do you?
I'm a listener. A very important part of society - a listener. Without us, who would the talkers talk to - each other? Talkers don't listen to themselves, much less other talkers.
Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Well, for a listener, that's quite a lot of gab!
I may not say anything again until... June 14!

It amazes me how this movie is so seldom shown is not available on DVD. It's one of the most original love stories ever made, the leads are superb, overcoming the initial impression they are miscast. That proves what gifted actors Booth and Ryan were. This bittersweet love story between a less than glamorous piano girl in a shabby bar and a handsome businessman covers several years of their annual clandestine meeting until their romance is interrupted by World War II. All along the way you have a foreboding of doom for these two unlikely secret lovers, but you root for them anyway. I've written to TCM begging them to show this film, I hope they do so soon.
