I have watched this movie several times and get a little more each time out of it. It isn't an action packed movie, but is a sweet and heart tugging movie. I Loved Geraldine Page and Glen Ford in the roles they played. They played very real to life people, with real to life situations, at least for that era. I loved the ending...but then, I have always been a sap for happy ending.
Page plays a sweet, but eccentric Post Mistress, thinking that she must resign herself to becoming a spinster...she meets Ford, a good time Charlie out for a little action, but ready to settle down. Page is so wonderful as a sort of good hearted innocent trtying to find the life she wants. Very romantic and sort of sad and sappy, but I loved it and consider it one of my all time favs. I really think the character development is great and the music and story are also interesting. It is a slower moving movie, not much action, but very good content.
